As the highest level American official who visited Cairo after the new Egyptian government took office, Hillary Clinton's statements and statements reflected that "strategic partnership" will become the main direction for the future development of Egypt US relations

since Egyptian President morsi was sworn in at the end of June, on the one hand, he began to compete with the military for legislative power. On the other hand, he immediately began non-stop diplomatic activities: within a short week, he successively visited the Gulf power Saudi Arabia, met with Tunisian President mazuki, attended the African Union summit and met with visiting U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and set about planning for Egyptian diplomacy. Egypt is a major country of great significance in the Middle East, and its foreign relations have attracted much attention from the outside world. As the highest level US official who visited Cairo after the new Egyptian government took office, Hillary Clinton's statements and statements reflect that the "strategic partnership" will become the main direction for the future development of Egypt US relations

although morsi has the background of the Muslim Brotherhood, as the head of the new government, if he wants to make a difference in diplomacy, he must rely on the strong support of the United States. Maintaining a good cooperative partnership with the United States is the diplomatic focus of the new government. In addition, Egypt's biggest problem at present is to improve people's livelihood, promote economic development and stabilize social sentiment as soon as possible. Therefore, it needs economic and military assistance from the United States. Since Egypt and Israel signed the peace treaty in 1979, the United States has provided about $1.3 billion in military assistance to Egypt every year, making Egypt one of the countries receiving the largest amount of U.S. assistance

if the United States wants to improve its image in Arab countries and ease the confrontation between the Arab world and Israel caused by the Palestinian Israeli conflict, it must also cooperate closely with Egypt, a heavyweight power in the Arab world. It is precisely for the above considerations that Hillary Clinton visited Egypt and Israel immediately after her visit to East Asia. On the one hand, she hoped to observe the diplomatic trends of the new Egyptian government, indicating that the United States still attached great importance to the development of strategic relations with Egypt in the post Mubarak era. On the other hand, she also wanted to ensure that the Egyptian Israeli peace treaty would not change as the new Egyptian government came to power

it can be said that in terms of relations with the United States, Egypt and the United States have mutual needs in terms of economic and strategic interests

Egypt's great power status in the Middle East is largely reflected in the balance between Israel and the Arab world. Egypt has always been regarded as the most important country in the Middle East to Israel and has always acted as a mediator between Israel and Palestine. Morsi and Hillary Clinton reaffirmed that they would abide by all international treaties during their talks, indicating that the new Egyptian government would not easily tear up the peace treaty, which reassured the United States. Despite the fact that the new government with the background of the Muslim Brotherhood firmly supports Palestine because of its year-round experience in producing machines from small manufacturers with machine performance and model quality, the Egyptian government will not go too far on the road against Israel for the time being in view of the overall diplomatic layout and the pressure of the United States. It is expected that further promoting Palestinian internal reconciliation and promoting Palestinian Israeli peace talks will become an indispensable and important part of morsi's future diplomacy

morsi visited Saudi Arabia for the first time after taking office, aiming to maintain the traditional good relationship between Egypt and Saudi Arabia, highlighting that further in-depth research in Egypt will lead to a series of new graphene functional materials with better performance and the relationship with the Gulf countries. Behind this is the realistic consideration of political and economic interests: morsi hopes to eliminate the worry that the new government with the background of the Muslim Brotherhood will have an adverse impact on the stability of the Gulf countries, and hopes that the Gulf countries will give assistance to help Egypt tide over its economic difficulties

Egypt, located in the North African continent, not only assumes a unique role in the Middle East, but also attaches great importance to Africa. Morsi recently attended the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, and elaborated on Egypt's policy towards Africa, indicating Egypt's determination to play a leading role in the African region of such graphene materials developed by Professor chenyongsheng's team. Properly handling African affairs will also become one of the priorities of Egypt's diplomatic work in the new historical period

Egypt is still in the period of political transition, the game and power struggle between the new government and the military are far from over, and it is still unknown when the power transfer will be completed. Therefore, it is impossible for the diplomatic sector to take major measures for the time being, especially in the relations with the United States, Israel and other Arab countries. There will be no sudden change in a certain period of time. Only after the power transition is basically completed and the new government takes real power will Egypt resume its diplomatic activities and its diplomatic strategy become clearer.
