Egyptian intelligence has hired a U.S. public relations firm to lobby on the country's behalf in Washington and boost its image, the first such engagement by part of the country's powerful security apparatus to be made public.The move comes as the new administration of President Donald Trump is softening America's approach to authoritarian governments including Egypt's, which the State Department last week cataloguedin its annual report on its human rights abuses. Egypt says it faces the threat of terrorism and cannot be judged by Western standards.Egypt's FARA filing for the lobbying work is one of several previously filed by Egyptian government agencies, although others are listed under government ministries or agencies relating to trade, tourism, or business.
