UAE says confident Egypt army will deliver on hopes

DUBAI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates said it trusted Egypt’s higher military council to run Egypt’s affairs and was keen to maintain a strong relationship with the country after Hosni Mubarak resigned as Egypt’s president on Friday.

“The UAE, which has closely monitored developments in Egypt, confirms its confidence in the ability of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces in running the country’s affairs in these delicate circumstances in such a way that would realize aspirations and hopes of the Egyptian people,” the statement from the Emirates News Agency said.
