Cairo officials sent a message to their counterparts in Israel this week reassuring them about Egypt's commitment to the peace process, Army Radio reported Tuesday.

The message, sent despite recent turmoil in Egypt, was reportedly transmitted by the top echelons of the Egyptian political scene. "Peace with Israel is of strategic importance to Egypt," the Cairo sources were quoted as saying.

Egypt will host a "million-man march" Tuesday, with protesters set to call for the firing of Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, head of the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces. In response to this new wave of protests, the entire Egyptian cabinet announced its resignation Monday night, six days before elections.
