Egyptian presidential candidate and former foreign minister Amr Moussa said Egypt disagrees with many aspects of Israel's foreign policy, especially with regards to the Palestinians and the peace process.

Speaking with CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday, Moussa said Egypt would respect the 1979 peace accords as it would all of Egypt's previous international agreements.

Moussa said the issue of continued Israeli occupation, and the Jewish settlement movement, must be addressed.

He stressed the importance of maintaining relations with Israel in order to keep Egyptian mediation relevant in the peace process.
