This bill would condition all foreign military financing to Egypt on a certification from the secretary of state that the government of Egypt is not controlled by or under the influence of a foreign terrorist organization. It also requires certification that Egypt is initiating reforms to secure the political, economic, and human rights of the Egyptian people. The final certification required to allow for the transfer of military support funds is that Egypt is upholding the 1979 treaty with Israel and taking ‘concrete, viable’ steps to crack down on the smuggling network along the border with Gaza.
