Israel calls in Egypt envoy, says peace deal vital

Sept. 16, 2011 4:47 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 18, 2011 9:35 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- Israel's Foreign Ministry called in the Egyptian ambassador on Friday to stress the importance of the two countries' historic peace accord, an Israeli official said, after Egypt's prime minister said the treaty was not "sacred".

Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf told Turkish television on Thursday that the 1979 peace accord with Israel could be changed for the benefit of the region.

An Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Foreign Ministry Director General Rafi Barak told Egyptian envoy Yasser Reda that treaties must be honored to the letter.

An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
