The sooner we put Egypt on the right track, the sooner we would be able to have an Egypt that is modern, that is moderate, and that is acting as a beacon for freedom and liberty across the Arab world.

Some suggestions for you :

I hope everybody will go back to the negotiating table. I've always said this is the only way forward.

You in the West have been sold the idea that the only options in the Arab world are between authoritarian regimes and Islamic jihadists. That's obviously bogus.

The U.S. engages with North Korea, so I don't see why they can't engage with Iran.

Your economic and social development is linked to the kind of regime you have.

What I see in the Arab world, in Egypt, everywhere is increasing radicalization.

You need to form a grand coalition, and you need to put your ideological differences aside and work together to focus on people's basic needs. You can't eat sharia.

If you bet on individuals instead of the people, you are going to fail.

How can you run for president if you don't know the job description?

We still live in a world where if you have nuclear weapons, you are buying power; you are buying insurance against attack.

Well, I think we still have to verify whatever declaration we will get and make sure that it is comprehensive and accurate. So, that would take care of the past activities.

The Nobel Peace Prize is a powerful message. A durable peace is not a single achievement, but an environment, a process and a commitment.

I lose my temper at home. I try to control my temper at work. Sometimes, if you are under a lot of pressure, you let off some steam, but I also try not to do that because it's unfair to my wife.

Threat is in the eye of the beholder.

Everybody has to chip in, I think, and see how we can have a functioning system of collective security where we do not continue to face the threat of countries trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction or particularly nuclear weapons.
