Baier: How do you and how do America's other Arab allies view U.S. leadership in the region now?

(Pause)

President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi: Difficult question.

BAIER: That got the english response.

Al-Sissi: As a matter of fact we have to admit that the region is facing very tough circumstances. Now, being here feels a lot of threats and it's really worked and the public opinion wants to see a big response from capable countries, countries that are able to provide assistance. 

For example, the suspending of equipment, weapons and arms was a negative indication to the public opinion that the United States is not standing by the Egyptians. 13 June 2013 until now is a long time now, more than a year and a half now. We thought that the United States would take time to understand what really happened in Egypt, but we need really to understand that it was and has been the will of the Egyptians.
