Merkel- Mubarak did service to Egypt by resigning

BERLIN, Feb 11 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak did a service to the people of Egypt by stepping down. She also said Egypt’s treaties with Israel need to be honoured. “Today is a day of great joy,” Merkel told a news conference. “We are all witness to a historic change. I share the joy of the people of Egypt, with the millions of people on the streets of Egypt.” (Reporting by Annika Breidthardt and Noah Barkin; Writing by Erik Kirschbaum)
