Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reportedly urged Egypt on Saturday not to be a "partner" in the Israeli operation against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
Reuters cited a Mehr News Agency report which quoted Ahmadinejad as saying "Today it has been heard in some of the West's political meetings that the Egyptian government is a partner in crimes in Gaza," seemingly a reference to Egyptian efforts to negotiate a cease-fire resolution.
"I believe that in the current conditions, and with the crimes it is committing, the Zionist regime Israel is after finding a partner for its crimes," he was quoted as saying.
"Therefore I ask the Egyptian officials to announce their stance on the Palestinian nation, especially on the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip and the Zionist regime's crimes, as soon as possible."
