Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday said during a speech at the Knesset that an "Egypt enshrined in democratic values will not constitute any threat to peace, but the opposite."

"The optimistic scenario is that these efforts for democracy and peace come true, but this is not the only scenario because Teheran is hoping for something else," the prime minister said.

Netanyahu stressed that "Iran's leaders are not interested in the aspirations of the citizens of Egypt."
