Egypt's interim military rulers are committed to maintaining existing regional and international agreements and will continue to support the Middle East peace process, Al-Masry Al Youm quoted Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi as saying on Saturday.

Tantawi stated that relations with Arab and African countries were a priority but he failed to specifically mention Egypt's peace treaty signed with Israel in 1979.

Tantawi, heading the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces that was handed power when Hosni Mubarak was forced to leave office in February, said he was committed to transforming the Arab world's most populous nation into a democracy in a televised address on Saturday.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has come under increasing pressure by protesters who say the army is dragging its feet on reforms.
