Egypt’s newly elected president, Mohamed Morsi, said Monday that his country’s Camp David peace treaty with Israel “will be reviewed,” the Iranian news agency Fars reported.

Morsi, a member the Muslim Brotherhood who was officially declared the winner of the election on Sunday, said he intends to achieve “strategic regional balance” by restoring “normal relations” with Iran.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Morsi’s win was a key step in “an Islamic awakening and a new era in the Middle East.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he hopes peace between Israel and Egypt remains intact, adding that he respects the results of Egypt’s first democratic election.
