Feb. 13, 2011 2:05 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 14, 2011 9:27 A.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Saturday telephoned Egypt's new military ruler Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, the Israeli news site Ynet reported.

Tantawi took power in Egypt following the ouster of veteran strongman Hosni Mubarak Friday.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the Egyptian military's statement that it would honor the peace treaty between the countries.

"The longstanding peace treaty between Israel and Egypt has greatly contributed to both countries and is the cornerstone for peace and stability in the entire Middle East," Netanyahu said in a statement from his office.
