Egypt seeks to bring about peace and achieve stability in the Middle East region without any hidden agendas, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said on Thursday.

Egypt will continue its efforts for fair peace, an end to Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, said the president in his speech on the eve of the 58th anniversary of the country's July revolution.

The president said Egypt has sacrificed a lot for the Palestinian cause.

Egypt has played an important mediating role in the Middle East peace process. On Sunday, Mubarak held separate talks with U.S. envoy George Mitchell, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu respectively to discuss the regional peace process.
