Throughout the period of transition, we have pressed the Egyptian authorities to respect the existing obligations already agreed by Egypt.

We want Egypt to continue to act as a force for regional peace and stability, including by maintaining a productive relationship with Israel. We were encouraged by the President-elect, Dr Mohammed Morsi’s, speech on 24 June in which he stated that Egypt would respect all international conventions and obligations already agreed by Egypt. We will follow closely the development of the new Egyptian Government’s foreign policy, including relations between Egypt and Israel.
