Bush thanks Mubarak for role in truce, withdrawal
United States President George W. Bush phoned Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak Wednesday to thank him for Cairo's role in brokering a Palestinian truce and an Israeli troop pullout.
According to MENA, the US leader told Mubarak he "appreciated what Egypt did with the Palestinians to reach a unified position in an agreement between the Palestinians and Israelis."
"Bush confirmed the administration will continue to exert efforts so the parties carry out all clauses of the agreement," the agency said.
"Mubarak and Bush agreed that what was achieved is a positive step and agreed to work together to encourage Israelis and Palestinians to take more steps forward for peace, security and stability for both peoples," it added. (Albawaba.com)
