Egypt's Mohamed Morsi Sends Message to Israel

Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi sent a missive to President Shimon Peres on Tuesday wishing stability and security for all of the region’s nations, including Israel.

“I am looking forward to exerting our best efforts to get the Middle East peace process back to its right track in order to achieve security and stability for all peoples of the region, including that Israeli people,” Morsi said in the missive.

The short letter came as a response to a message sent by Peres a month ago in which the president congratulated Morsi for his elections victory, and offered his blessing ahead of the month of Ramadan.

In his answer in English, the Egyptian president thanked Peres for his congratulatory message.

“It was with deep thanks that I received your congratulations on the advent of the Holy Month of Ramadan,” Morsi wrote.
