Egyptians, Saudis urge Iran to show flexibility

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Saudi King Abdullah urged Iran and the international community on Wednesday to exercise flexibility in the dispute over Tehran's nuclear program. The two leaders, both close US allies, said the region did not need a nuclear power. Mubarak's spokesman, Suleiman Awwad, told reporters that both leaders held identical view that "the Middle East region does not need any nuclear weapon, be it in the hand of Iran or Israel. "They called on Iran and the international community to show flexibility in the current talks about the issue," he said.
