Egypt and Israel signed a peace treaty in 1979 at the White House witnessed by Carter, who was then president of the United States.

The Jewish state has watched with concern, however, as Islamists were catapulted to the forefront of Egyptian politics since a popular uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak last year.

Mursi, a long-time member of the Muslim Brotherhood, has repeatedly said he would respect international treaties signed by Cairo.

But the Brotherhood has also said there is room to revise the accords, without objecting to them in principle.
