Egypt’s leading Salafi movement clarified Sunday its stance on diplomatic relations with Israel saying that it would oppose an improvement in ties between the two countries, according to Army Radio.

"We will stand firmly against normalization between the two countries in a variety of forms, and against any entity that wants to harm Egypt's identity," the movement said in a written announcement.

The announcement came after a spokesman for the group gave an interview to Army Radio last week during which he said "the peace agreement with Israel will not be canceled."
