A senior Egyptian official said that Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi's visit to Cairo was intended, among other things, to restore relations between the two countries, London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Monday.
"There is a main goal to these talks, which is the expansion of Egyptian-Israeli relations within the framework of the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum and the economic issues related to it," said the source, adding that more Arab countries would join the forum soon.
The source added it's possible that Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri might visit Israel soon, especially in light of the fact that Egypt is working hard to host various events on the Israeli-Arab peace process.
