Share this article
After more than six years, Egypt and the United States have resumed their formal strategic dialogue. 

Officials said representatives of Egypt and the United States met on June 7 in Cairo for the first strategic dialogue since the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

They said the dialogue reviewed Egyptian-U.S. military and security relations as well as regional threats. "These discussions are not new, but the formal framework has been revived," an official said.

The U.S. side in the strategic dialogue was led by Undersecretary of State William Burns. Burns was joined by U.S. ambassador to Egypt, Margaret Scobey, and the meeting was attended by Foreign Minister Ahmed Abu Al Gheit.
