CairoU.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reportedly got a key promise from Egypt"s new President, which he would not put Israel peace deal to public referendum. Since the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak last year, Muslim Brotherhood leaders have occasionally said they would put the unpopular 1979 peace treaty with Israel to a public referendum.
Clinton flew to Israel from Egypt, where she held talks on Saturday with with newly-elected President Mohammed Mursi and military leader Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi.
On the last leg of a 12-day, eight-nation tour, Clinton met early on Monday with her Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman before meeting Peres.
