WASHINGTON — The White House said Friday that that whatever government emerges in Egypt, the US expects its relationship with its key Arab ally to continue to provide safety, security and regional stability.

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked whether the US relationship with Egypt would ever be the same in the wake of ferocious protests aimed at toppling autocratic President Hosni Mubarak. Mubarak's 30-year reign has provided regional stability and Israeli security even as he repressed his people.

But Gibbs said the US expects that whatever government comes next will continue to provide a "cornerstone for safety and security and regional stability in the Middle East. It has been an important relationship and it will be in the future."
