Egypt appeals to keep US-led forces in Sinai

Cairo is working to persuade the Biden administration to keep the US-led Multinational Force and Observers in the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt is trying to persuade the Biden administration to keep the US-led Multinational Force and Observers in the Sinai Peninsula near the border with Israel even as the United States reduces its military presence in the Middle East.

The United States seems to be focusing its priorities and resources on East Asia to face the mounting challenges presented by China. After previous administrations had tried to reduce US military expenditures in the Middle East, the US withdrawal from Afghanistan shows that the Biden administration is actively reshaping foreign policy.
