Suleiman Meets with Israeli Leaders; Invites Lieberman to Egypt


"23/04/2009 For Egypt, it’s always a different approach when it comes to Israel. Cairo is seeking to thaw tensions with Israel which erupted after Avigdor Lieberman was appointed top diplomat in the Zionist government.

Observers say that the Egyptian regime should have saved face by, at least, not taking the initiative and rush to mend fences with Tel Aviv, especially that Lieberman has called for destroying Aswan’s High Dam if Egypt deployed its military in the Sinai and his extremist party Israel Beitunu believes that Arabs should either be killed or thrown in deserts and seas.

On Wednesday evening, the new Israeli Foreign Minister Lieberman met in occupied Jerusalem with visiting Egyptian intelligence chief, Omar Suleiman. Lieberman held "an important and constructive meeting" with Suleiman "in a friendly atmosphere," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The low-key meeting took place a week after Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit declared Lieberman would "not set foot on Egyptian soil."........"
