Egypt is still in full control of its borders, an Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said late on Saturday, following remarks made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Israel's need to have security control of the Gaza border with Egypt to prevent smuggling of weapons into the Strip by Hamas. 

"These are matters of agreements between the states involved," the spokesperson said, "so any statement would be reviewed and responded to accordingly."
