The article reports on a meeting hosted by the United States Egypt Friendship Society (USEF) in Washington DC. Addressing the audience, Egyptian Ambassador Nabil Fahmy said the relationship is "based on three pillars": the peace process, security and economics. He expressed guarded optimism that the opening of negotiations toward a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) may be announced after further trade talks in March. Asked why Egypt has not already signed an FTA with the U.S., as have Jordan and Morocco, Fahmy emphasized the need to progress in a number of areas.
