The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt denies a report in Israeli newspaper Yediot Acharonot, according to which the movement has reached understandings with the United States and Israel, according to which the Muslim Brotherhood "understands the importance of safeguarding the peace treaty with Israel.'
Yediot Acharonot reported an alleged statement by Jeffrey Feltman, Assistant US Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs.
Dr. Mahmoud Saad Alkatani, Director of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice party, told Al Sharq al-Awsat Friday: "The report in the newspaper is completely unfounded. There have been no contacts or understandings with the American or Israeli side about the peace treaty that President Anwar Sadat signed in 1979."
He remarked that his party "adheres to respecting the international agreements, as long as they fulfill the purpose that they were meant to, and believes that Parliament has the right to reevaluate any agreement.
"A long time has passed since the Camp David accord was signed and like the other agreements it needs reevaluation and this is in the hands of the Parliament… Generally, Israel does not honor the agreement," he added.
