“It is in the national security interests of the United States to secure a peaceful solution to the crisis in the Middle East, and I support U.S. efforts to achieve that goal through bilateral dialogue that genuinely resolves differences. But I am deeply troubled by Egypt’s new efforts to pass a new United Nations Security Council resolution, and it should be vetoed.”
