Israel welcomes Egypt assurance on peace treaty

JERUSALEM - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday welcomed assurances from Egypt's military that Cairo would respect its 1979 peace treaty with the Jewish state, in a statement from his office. It said Netanyahu "welcomes the statement of the Egyptian military that Egypt will continue to honour the peace treaty with Israel.
