REMARKS BY PRESIDENT OBAMA
AND PRESIDENT HOSNI MUBARAK OF EGYPT
BEFORE BILATERAL MEETING
PRESIDENT MUBARAK: (As translated.) I'd like to welcome President Obama to Egypt. This is his first -- our first meeting together. We discussed so many issues -- the Middle East issues -- interests in the region. We also discussed all problems here in the region, the situation and everything related to Iran and to the region.
Thank you very much.
As the President has indicated, we discussed the situation with Israel and the Palestinians. We discussed how we can move forward in a constructive way that brings about peace and prosperity for all people in the region. And I emphasized to him that America is committed to working in partnership with the countries in the region so that all people can meet their aspirations.
