Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi will discuss, in coming days, making changes in the Camp David Accord signed with Israel. The changes will allow Egypt "to implement its full sovereignty over the Sinai Peninsula."

Morsi's advisor told an Egyptian newspaper, Al Masri al Youm, that despite the fact that Al Masri dismissed the entire top echelon of Egypt's security mechanism, there is no bad blood between the Military Council and the elected president.

The decision regarding whom to appoint as the new Defense Minister and  Chief of Staff was taken by the Morsi, the advisor said, without the intervention of the Military Council.

Morsi has appointed Abdul-Fatah al-Sessi as Defense Minister and Lieutenant-General Sidki Sayed Ahmed as Army Chief of Staff.
