Political Officials: Egypt's Denial was Expected

Senior political officials said on Tuesday night that Egypt's denial that President Mohammed Morsi had sent a letter to Israeli President Peres was expected.

“The denial was expected in light of the tremendous public echo the letter has received in both Israel and Egypt, and there is no reason to be excited by it,” the officials said.
