When asked for his opinion on the US and international community’s response to the conflict, Mubarak said “A bit too little, too late. The situation could have been contained at its early stage. Instead, it has been allowed to aggravate, with little effort being exerted within and outside the Security Council.

 

“Now is the time for the Council to shoulder its responsibility in the maintenance of international peace and security. The US and the other permanent members have to assume a particular responsibility in this regard. An urgent and serious demarche by the international community is most needed” the Egyptian president told Time magazine.

 

“Military operations will not solve Israel's problems with Hizbullah. An immediate cease-fire is the utmost priority. Cessation of hostilities would create the environment conducive to addressing such problems in a candid manner. The bloodshed and the heavy toll of Israel's operations must be brought to an end.”
