Egyptian PM says peace treaty with Israel open to changes
Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf said Thursday the 1979 peace treaty with Israel is not sacred and is open to discussion and changes, the official MENA news agency quoted Sharaf in an interview with a Turkish TV.
The Camp David accord is open to discussion and changes as long as they serve for a just peace in the region, Sharaf said, noting the agreement is not a sacred book, Xinhua reported.
Meanwhile, Sharaf said in the interview that Egypt and Turkey are two major powers in the region, whose aim is just peace and development. He added a recent visit to Egypt by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan "came at a critical time when real changes occurred in the Middle East."
