Wednesday's aid announcement represents something of a victory for Mr Tillerson and US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, both of whom argued against the Jerusalem decision and had lobbied to continue assistance to Jordan on national security grounds. "'Egypt deals with the threats of ISIS themselves and are dealing with it now in the Sinai".
The visit comes as Egypt is undertaking a major military operation in Sinai, where militants have been leading an insurgency for years, and in remote areas of the mainland where extremists have attacked security forces and civilians.
Experts said the decision to give more aid to an important US ally like Jordan is a triumph of Tillerson's pragmatism over Trump's instincts.
Mr. Pence reiterated that the USA will continue to impose increasing sanctions on the Kim Jong-un regime in the North until it takes clear steps to denuclearize its weapons program, but that the U.S.is willing to talk while exerting the diplomatic and economic pressure. State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert tweeted on the same day that the two sides also discussed the settlement of the Syria crisis and the issue of the Korean Peninsula.
On the Middle East peace process, the US Secretary of State said his country remains committed to achieving lasting peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
"The final boundaries of Jerusalem are yet to be set between the involved parties", he said.
Mr. Tillerson said that the administration is hoping that other countries and aid organizations step in with funding as the United States retreats.
But the U.S. acting assistant secretary of state, David Satterfield, said on Wednesday that the fallout had been limited. He called for a two-state solution in any settlement between Israel and the Palestinians.
Tillerson was speaking at a meeting in Kuwait of the global coalition against Islamic State.
"Egypt has standard diplomatic ties with the DPRK, as do many Western NATO members", according to Shoukry.
Ahead of the trip a State Department official pointed to "concerns about human rights and civil society" as "a topic of continuing conversation with the Egyptians".
Tillerson is also expected this week to visit Turkey, with which USA ties have become badly strained over Washington's support for the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria, regarded by Ankara as a terrorist group.
