WASHINGTON : Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak hailed Tuesday US President Barack Obama's keynote speech in Cairo in June, saying the address had allayed the concerns of the Islamic world about US intentions.
"He came to give his address, it was a very strong address and it removed all doubts about the United States and the Muslim world," Mubarak said after meeting Obama at a White House summit.
"The importance of the Cairo visit was very appreciated by the Muslim Islamic world because the Islamic world had thoughts that the US was against Islam... But his great, fantastic address there has removed all those doubts."
Obama has made relaunching the Middle East peace process a top priority, pledging a "new beginning" for Islam and the United States in his landmark speech to the world's Muslims in Cairo.
