Funds brought to the Palestinian territories through Egypt are not being illegally smuggled, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak told reporters Thursday during a summit with Israeli Premier Ehud Olmert to revive the stalled Mideast peace process. "We don't allow money carried by Palestinians to be smuggled, but Egyptian law allows the passage of money as long as it is declared," said Mubarak, reacting to calls from Olmert to prevent funds from being smuggled to the Hamas-led Palestinian government. Olmert told reporters Thursday that he discussed the problem of smuggling to the Gaza Strip with Mubarak. "We are doing our utmost to prevent smuggling of weapons, but no country is 100 percent capable of stopping it," Mubarak told reporters.
