Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit said on Saturday that his country is not committed to a deal between the United States and Israel, which aims at halting arms smuggling to Gaza Strip controlled by the Islamic Hamas movement.

Egypt "have no commitment towards this memo," Abul Gheit told reporters, referring to the U.S.-Israeli deal signed on Friday to stop weapon smuggling to Gaza.

The U.S.-Israeli agreement "does not concern us in anything," said the Egyptian foreign minister.

On Friday, the United States and Israel signed in Washington a Memorandum of Understanding to stop weapon smuggling to Gaza Strip so as to boost efforts for a durable ceasefire in the war-torn region.

The signing of the agreement "should be thought of as one of the elements of trying to help bring into being a durable ceasefire," U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told reporters. Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni attended the signing ceremony.
