Cairo, Asharq Al-Awsat, The Al-Nur Party announced yesterday that it would respect the Egyptian-Israeli peace agreement.

In a statement carried by the Egyptian state-run news agency, the Salafist party said it sees it as dangerous to unilaterally cancel an international accord even if it was signed by the former regime.

The party declared that it will respect this agreement and hopes that this stance does not contradict with Egypt’s Arab and Islamic duties.

Al-Nur has ranked second to the Muslim Brotherhood in the first two rounds of the Egyptian parliamentary elections.
