Among the letters of congratulation that have poured into Cairo following the swearing in of President Mohamed Mursi was one from President Shimon Peres, who emphasized the importance of maintaining the peace agreement that was signed between Egypt and Israel.

Peres wrote: "As someone who took part in the process that led to the peace agreement that was signed between my country and yours, I know that both Egypt and Israel attribute supreme importance to regional peace and stability, which serve the interests of all peoples in the region.

"All of us in Israel greatly respect Egypt and the Egyptian people, who have served as pioneers and have outlined the way of peace and reconciliation in the region, and we know that the work is not yet finished."
