World capitals react to presidential win by Egypt Brotherhood's Mursi.

Foreign capitals send messages of congratulations to Egypt's new president and the Egyptian people for successful completion of first free presidential election.

The United Arab Emirates congratulated the Egyptian people on the successful conclusion of their first free presidential election.

"We hail the Egypt presidential election results and respect the free will of the Egyptian people," the statement read. "We hope this election will bring them both stability and prosperity."

UAE minister Abd Allah Ben Zaid declared on Twitter: "Congratulations to Egypt."

The emir of Kuwait, meanwhile, congratulated Mursi in an official statement, which read: "We wish President Mursi the best of luck in meeting the hopes and dreams of the Egyptian people and restoring Egypt's vital role on the regional and international stages."

UK Foreign Minister William Hague, for his part, stated: "Congratulations to the Egyptian people for the successful conclusion of a fair and transparent election."


Iran hails Islamist Mursi's victory in Egypt vote.

Iran's Foreign Ministry congratulated Egyptians on Sunday for the victory of Islamist Mohamed Mursi in the country's first free presidential election and said the country was in the final stages of an "Islamic Awakening".

"The revolutionary movement of the Egyptian people... is in its final stages of the Islamic Awakening and a new era of change in the Middle East," the ministry said in a statement on the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA).


Israel reacts to Muslim Brotherhood Egypt presidential victory.

Tel Aviv registers its 'appreciation for Egypt's democratic process,' says it 'looks forward to continuing cooperation with Egypt govt on basis of Camp David peace treaty'.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Ofir Gendelman declared on Twitter on Sunday following the announcement of Egypt's final presidential election results that "Israel appreciates the democratic process in Egypt and respects the results of the presidential elections."

He added: "Israel looks forward to continuing cooperation with the Egyptian government on the basis of the [Camp David] peace treaty between the two countries, which is in the joint interest of both peoples and contributes to regional stability."


White House congratulates Mursi on Winning Egyptian Presidential Election

"The United States congratulates Mohamed Mursi on his victory in Egypt’s Presidential election, and we congratulate the Egyptian people for this milestone in their transition to democracy.

"We look forward to working together with President-elect Mursi and the government he forms, on the basis of mutual respect, to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States. We believe that it is important for President-elect Morsi to take steps at this historic time to advance national unity by reaching out to all parties and constituencies in consultations about the formation of a new government. We believe in the importance of the new Egyptian government upholding universal values, and respecting the rights of all Egyptian citizens – including women and religious minorities such as Coptic Christians. Millions of Egyptians voted in the election, and President-elect Morsi and the new Egyptian government have both the legitimacy and responsibility of representing a diverse and courageous citizenry.

"The United States intends to work with all parties within Egypt to sustain our long-standing partnership as it consolidates its democracy. We commend the Presidential Election Commission and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) for their role in supporting a free and fair election, and look forward to the completion of a transition to a democratically-elected government. We believe it is essential for the Egyptian government to continue to fulfill Egypt’s role as a pillar of regional peace, security and stability. And we will stand with the Egyptian people as they pursue their aspirations for democracy, dignity, and opportunity, and fulfill the promise of their revolution."

Moursi and the Egyptian election is a thing of the past here (and I realize it has only been a couple of days) but all TV News has gone quiet here about now about the MB candidate getting elected.
