US Republican Senator John McCain reportedly told the Al-Hurra TV channel that the image of the U.S. in the world today was the worst he had ever seen, claiming that U.S. policy towards Egypt was "non-existent" and that U.S. influence in the Middle-East had "never been so weak."
"America does not have any foreign policy towards Egypt, absolutely no policy, no strategy, only withdrawals from all files. But if the US withdraws, the results will be bad in the Middle East and in the whole world," he said.
He criticized U.S. State Secretary John Kerry, who is a member of the board of directors for Al-Hurra TV, stating his disappointment in his performance regarding Syria, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Conceding defeat, McCain added, "We lost influence, we lost power. We are seen as helpless."Last Mod: 14 Kasım 2013, 17:06
