Defense News reports that “the United States is pressing ahead with plans to deliver four F-16 fighters to Egypt despite a military coup against President Mohammed Morsi, a US official said.”

“‘It’s still the status quo,’ the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP.”

“There was no decision to halt the scheduled transfer of the warplanes or to cut off other security assistance to Egypt, the official said, even though the US government has announced a review of all aid to Cairo.”
