Egyptian army in talks with ElBaradei, Moussa
Wednesday, March 2, 2011
CAIRO - Agence France-Presse



Egypt's military leaders met with a group of Egyptian politicians, businessmen and politicians, including opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei and Arab League chief Amr Moussa, on Tuesday to discuss upcoming reforms, state media reported. The goal was to listen to their views on the current political, economic and social system following the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak on Feb. 11 after weeks of protests, the state news agency MENA said.
The talks focused on constitutional reform, especially on the conditions for presidential candidates and the reduction of the number of terms to two terms of four years instead of an unlimited number of six-year terms, it said.  ElBaradei, who ran the Vienna-based U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency from 1997 to 2009, returned to Egypt to publicly oppose Mubarak on Jan. 27, three days before the massive street protests began, said he has not ruled out a run for the presidency.
Moussa said last month he would be a candidate for Egyptian president.

Merhaba to Cairo Mr. Gul

Mr. Abdullah Gul is the first foreign president to visit Egypt after the revolution , he visited Cairo last Thursday and his visit was full of important meetings.
President Gul and Field Marshal Tantawy
An army translator between them 
He first met with field marshal Tantawy where they held talks , Gul expressed his wish to share the Turkish experience in democracy especially with the army. Of course our army is different from the Turkish army and its control on life in Turkey but still it is good to share and see other’s people experiences as we can learn from their mistakes. The Turkish president was optimistic and he assured to the whole world the our military junta are aware well enough of what we want in this revolution. I hope the talks included future plans of military exercise with Turkey.
Later at the Turkish embassy in Giza Gul met with Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei , Dr. Amr Moussa , representatives of Muslim brotherhood who are so proud of the AKP and Wafd party leader Siyad El-Badawy. “Yes Siyad El-Badawy Confused smile“ 


Gul aslo met with a delegation of the revolution youth from different political groups.

President Gul has issued a presidential decree to cancel visa between Egypt and Turkey , we do not need visa to visit Turkey anymore and Turks do not need visa to visit Egypt anymore. This move is great for our economy and our tourism especially now. FYI Turkey has promising investments in Egypt since the Mubarak era.
Despite having a good start for economic relations with Turkey , the Mubarak regime as a weak one did not like the return of Turkey to the Islamic Arabic world as all the people agreed that Turkey was actually replacing Egypt’s place thanks to the Mubarak. The Mubarak’s media kept attacking Turkey especially after the AKP’s success in the elections which showed to the west that there is no need to be afraid from Islamists , Turkey was the new enemy for the Mubarak’s regime along with Qatar , Syria and Iran.
I would like to remind with what once a Bloomberg analyst said during the early days of revolution Egypt can have a strong economy , in fact can be an economic power like Turkey in the regime after couple of years if we have managed to have a democratic regime.
I want to thank the people of Turkey who stood with us during the revolution , this means so much for us.
