Restriction on certain military sales to Egypt

The United States Government may not allow the sale, lease, transfer, retransfer, or delivery of F–16 aircraft, M1 tanks, or certain other defense articles or services to the Government of Egypt until the President certifies to Congress that the Government of Egypt has agreed—
