Question: Does the US think Egypt is playing a constructive role in the fight against global terrorism
Answer: The United States and Egypt maintain a strong counterterrorism dialogue and share information on a broad range of counterterrorism and law enforcement issues. Moreover, in the past six years, Egypt has tightened its terrorist finance regulations in keeping with relevant UN Security Council resolutions. Egypt strengthened its anti-money laundering legislation by specifically adding terrorism financing to the list of punishable crimes. It has also maintained open lines of communication with U.S. officials concerning terrorist finance information. Finally, the Egyptian government regularly informs its own financial institutions of any individuals or entities that are designated by any of the UN sanctions committees.
