Yechimovich: Morsy comments on Israel satisfactory thus far

Opposition leader Shelly Yechimovich said Monday that she is satisfied with statements made by newly-elected Egyptian President Mohamad Morsy that he will honor the peace treaty with Israel.

"Peace with Egypt is of the utmost strategic importance," she said. "We must do everything we can to preserve the state of relations with it."

In his election victory speech, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate vowed to "preserve international accords and obligations," in what appeared to be a reference to the peace treaty with Israel.

It is unclear whether or not Yechimovich was aware that Morsy recently told Iran's semi-official Fars news agency that he would review the 1979 Camp David peace treaty with Israel.
