Israeli envoys leave Cairo after discussions with officials



Two Israeli envoys left Cairo on Wednesday on board a private plane bound for Tel Aviv after a meeting with Egyptian officials aimed at curbing the current crisis in the bilateral relations between Egypt and Israel.

They discussed ways to secure the embassy for the return of the ambassador as soon as possible. The envoys had visited Cairo on Sunday and again on Monday for the same purpose.

The crisis started in August with the deaths of six Egyptian border guards during Israeli military raids in pursuit of terrorists, and culminated in the storming of the Israeli Embassy in Cairo by Egyptian protesters last week.

Strategic expert Abdel Moneim Kato said the envoys may have also briefed Cairo on new Israeli activities aimed at securing the border against infiltration.

“Sending envoys to Cairo implies that Israel is keen on returning relations to normal,” he said.
