Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau member Ibrahim Mounir denied on Friday his organisation had reassured Washington concerning Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel. Mounir told Iranian satellite channel El-Alam that the MB had previously explained that this issue would be proposed to the Egyptian nation in a referendum to decide upon its fate.
Mounir’s explanation came as a response to the statements made by US State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland on Thursday claiming that the MB has reassured the US it would maintain the peace treaty with Israel.
