ISMAILIA, Egypt — President Hosni Mubarak pledged Saturday to make every effort to regain the Sinai desert enclave of Taba from Israel.

"I promise you I will do my best to get Taba back," he told reporters during a tour of this Suez Canal city.

Israel retained the 700-yard coastal strip when it handed back the Sinai peninsula to Egypt in 1982.
