MUNICH — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Sunday said the unrest in Egypt has "serious implications" for the Mideast peace process.

Ban, who is in Munich for an annual security conference, told a small group of reporters Sunday that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and the Egyptian government have been key in the negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel.

He said that whether Mubarak is forced out of office is up to the Egyptian people, but the UN is concerned that whatever happens does not affect the stability of the country.

Ban added, "This is why we would like to see a transition take place in an orderly and peaceful manner."
