Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak on Thursday criticized the Bush administration for being too slow in helping to resolve the crisis in Lebanon. "The United States did not move sufficiently and quickly enough to contain the situation," Mubarak was quoted as saying by the state-run Middle East News Agency. He also blamed other UN Security Council members for their inaction. "The international dealing with the crisis, whether inside or outside the Security Council, lacks necessary speed and balance," Mubarak said. He blamed the Lebanese standoff on the international community's failure to push for a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians. "Unless the United States and other members of the Quartet admit [their failure to address the Palestinian peace process] this crisis will only breed more crises," Mubarak said.
