Egypt’s first freely-elected President Mohamed Morsi says his country ‘will stand with Palestinian people until they get their rights’.
“I will not betray my nation, my people,” Morsi said during his inauguration speech at Cairo University on Saturday.
Earlier, Morsi took the oath and became Egypt’s first civilian president in a swearing-in ceremony at the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC).
The Muslim Brotherhood candidate was announced president on Sunday after a runoff with Ahmed Shafiq, who served as Hosni Mubarak's last prime minister.
