Netanyahu says meeting with Egypt FM signals ‘an important warming’

At a Likud faction meeting, Prime Minister Netanyahu tells the party’s Knesset members about his meeting yesterday with the Egyptian foreign minister.

He notes that Sameh Shoukry was the most senior Cairo official to visit Jerusalem in nine years, which, he says, “also symbolizes an important warming between Israel and Egypt.”

Netanyahu said that Jerusalem was pursuing ties with nations “on five continents,” and spoke of his African tour last week, saying it advanced Israel’s bid to secure more support at the United Nations.

“You have to understand that the automatic majority in international forums relies primarily on the bloc of African countries, and to a certain extent on the bloc of Latin American countries.

“To the extent that we succeed in cracking that, it changes our international standing with a variety of forums that make decisions regarding the State of Israel and the IDF.”
