JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed statements by Egypt's military that it would honor the peace treaty with Israel.

"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 Saturday night in his first comments since Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned on Feb. 11, ceding power to the military.
