In his first televised speech, Egypt's president-elect, Mohammed Morsi, said he would respect all international agreements and wants peace for the nation. He also pledged to preserve Egypt’s international accords, a reference to the peace deal with Israel.

The president-elect said he and his colleagues would form very balanced relations with all international forces and try to treat them equally, adding that it will be balanced between Egypt and all other countries on the basis of common interests and mutual respect. He said Egypt would not interfere with the business of others, nor allow anyone to interfere with its internal affairs.

As the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Morsi also pledged to be a president for all Egyptians. He noted there is no difference between Coptics and Muslims, clearing that all are governed by law. And he said national unity is the only way to bring Egypt out of the current turmoil.
