Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said that the continued meetings with Palestinian president affirm Egypt's commitment towards the Palestinian issue
In a statement to the Palestinian "Wafa" news agency, Fahmy said that Egypt will not use force against the Palestinian people, rather against those who attack its borders and sovereignty.
He described as "positive" statements by US President Barack Obama on Egypt at the UN General Assembly meetings, saying that he has reservations on the US president's speech, particularly on the part related to US aid to Egypt.
Fahmy underlined that the Egyptian-US relations could not be restricted to the aid issue, quoting Obama as saying for the sake of US interests, he will deal with Egypt.
He went on to say that Egypt would deal with US in accordance with its interests, making it clear that the decision of Egyptian government would not be contingent on the assessment of the outside to the internal situation in Egypt.
