Washington Requested to Support al-Baradei

Scoop.co.nz says Egyptian VP al-Beradei contacted the Obama administration and the Conference of Jewish Organizations last Tuesday in anticipation of his election as Interim VP.

What ElBaradei’s representatives are reportedly offering the White House in exchange for Obama’s discreet assistance, is that the 1979 Camp David Accord, including all its elements, will be observed. In addition, says Scoop.co.nz, Egypt under ElBaradei can be expected to toughen its stance on Iran’s nuclear program including publicly adjusting some of his pre-2012 comments on Iran that the White House and Israel criticized as being “soft on the Islamic Republic.”

Sccop.co.nz adds that also being promised by ElBaradei’s agents is that security cooperation between Egypt and Israel will grow stronger. ElBaradei’s objective is to secure Barack Obama’s personal support during his candidacy for the expected  forthcoming Egyptian presidential election.
