Egypt's foreign minister said that his country would not allow foreign naval forces to operate in its territorial waters to prevent weapons smuggling to Gaza. Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit spoke to reporters Wednesday as Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni headed to Brussels where Israeli officials said she hoped to clinch a deal committing the EU to contribute forces, ships and technology to stop arms smuggling to Hamas. EU officials said it was too early for that, saying providing humanitarian relief and efforts to secure a lasting cease-fire were their priorities.
