Cheney hails `good friend` Mubarak
Santa Barbara: Former US vice president Dick Cheney calls Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak a good friend and US ally, and he urges the Obama administration to move cautiously as turmoil continued to shake that nation`s government.
Cheney`s comments come a day after President Barack Obama pressed Mubarak to consider his legacy and exit office in a way that would give his country the best chance for peace and democracy.
Cheney warned the administration against pushing Mubarak too hard in public. He said there`s a reason why a lot of diplomacy is conducted in secret.
He also said that ultimately the crisis is going to be resolved by Egyptians, and "we need to remember that”.
Cheney spoke on Saturday night in Santa Barbara, California, at an event commemorating the centennial of President Ronald Reagan`s birth.
