Israeli Prime Ministe, Naftali Bennett is on an official trip to Egypt to hold talks with Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
It is the first official trip to Egypt by an Israeli Premier after a decade.
The invitation to visit Egypt was accepted last month by Bennett, who succeeded Benjamin Netanyahu in June.
Bennett’s meeting with al-Sisi was only announced shortly before it started for security reasons.
According to the Egyptian presidency, the two leaders were expected to discuss “a number of bilateral issues in various fields”, as well as regional and international developments.
The Egyptian presidency said the two leaders would discuss bilateral and regional issues, with “ways and efforts to revive the peace process” between Israel and the Palestinians.
