Congressmen: Egypt opposes Iranian nuclear deal

Egypt, like Israel, opposes the Iranian nuclear deal brokered last month by the US and other leading nations, a group of US Congressmen who have been touring Israel and Egypt said Monday.

US President Barack Obama said in a speech at American University in Washington last week that “every nation in the world that has commented publicly – with the exception of the Israeli government – has expressed support.”

The Congressional delegation, organized by the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus, met Monday with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and a group of MKs from the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus that included former ambassador to the US Michael Oren. They are set to meet Tuesday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
