Maintaining the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty has been the central issue in US discussions with Egypt's military rulers, Egyptian political figure Mohamed ElBaradei told the Iranian Fars news agency Tuesday.

ElBaradei, the former head of the UN's nuclear watchdog group, told Fars that "What the supreme military council said was that the talks were about bilateral and mutual relations, but I believe that Americans wanted to ensure that the deals signed between Egypt and Israel will remain intact if Islamists ascend to power."

Nader Bakar, a spokesman of the Salafi al-Nour party, which has won about a quarter of the Egyptian vote thus far, told Fars on Saturday that "Al-Nour is against the establishment of any relations with the Zionist regime."
