US sees Mubarak's govt 'stable' amid Egypt protests

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs on Thursday called Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak a close and important U.S. partner, but stressed that the United States "was not taking sides" on the unrest in Egypt.

"This isn't a choice between the government and the people of Egypt," Gibbs told a press briefing. "This is not about taking sides."

"What is important is President Mubarak and those that seek greater freedom of expression, greater freedom to assemble, should be able to work out a process for that happening in a peaceful way," he said.

Gibbs said the United States believes the Egyptian government is "stable" despite massive street protests against it.
