WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says it's important that the next government of Egypt recognize existing accords with Israel.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs says America's partnership with Egypt has brought stability to the Middle East and, in particular, peace between Egypt and Israel. The two countries signed a peace treaty in 1979.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned from office on Friday, turning control of the country over to the military.

Some in Israel fear the change in leadership in Egypt means the peace treaty might not survive under a new government.
