Despite calls for ending foreign aid to Egypt in the wake of an attack on the U.S. embassy in Cairo, the White House is standing by funding commitments.

Asked on Air Force One Thursday if the United States would withhold aid, White House press secretary Jay Carney said simply: “No.”

Carney also told reporters that the partnership with Egypt continues as the country transitions into democracy — in the wake of President Obama’s comments Wednesday that Egypt was neither an ally nor an enemy.
