The US is suspending a large part of the US$1.3 billion in aid it gives to Egypt's military.
The State Department says the delivery of large-scale military systems as well as cash assistance to the Egyptian government will be withheld.
It says credible progress must be made towards free and fair elections.
A review was launched in August after a crackdown by Egyptian authorities on supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi left hundreds of people dead.
