The Muslim Brotherhood assured the United States that it will not break the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty despite its public statements to the contrary, a State Department spokesperson said Thursday.

"We have had other assurances from the party with regard to their commitment not only to universal human rights, but to the international obligations that the Government of Egypt has undertaken," State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland said in a briefing.

The Muslim Brotherhood party’s deputy leader Dr. Rashad Bayoumi said the group will not recognize Israel “under any circumstance,” in an interview published in the Arabic daily al-Hayat on Sunday.
