Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a staunch supporter of U.S. policy in the Persian Gulf, said in remarks published Monday that Egypt would not participate in a military strike against Iraq. Asked if Egypt would consider joining other Arabs to keep order in Iraq after a U.S. attack, Mubarak told the weekly Mayo newspaper: "No. We have nothing to do with Iraq. But it is no problem at all to enter Kuwait as a peacekeeping force. In fact it is natural," he was quoted as saying.
