White House: Obama commends Egyptian efforts on Israel-Gaza

Nov. 17, 2012 2:34 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 17, 2012 2:34 A.M.)
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- US President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohammad Mursi on Friday to commend the country's efforts to help calm the situation in Israel and Gaza and underscored his hope of restoring stability there, the White House said.

Egypt's prime minister, Hisham Kandil, has said Cairo is prepared to mediate a truce in the growing violence between Israel and Hamas. Egypt's government is allied with Hamas, but is also party to a 1979 peace treaty with Israel.
