The radio report says the talks will be focused on “security issues.”

Molcho, Sheffer, and Gilad all met with Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi in 2012, prior to his election and after the toppling of Mohammed Morsi, to discuss security cooperation between the Israeli and Egyptian armed forces.
