Egypt: Israeli delegation expected to arrive soon for talks

Sept. 4, 2014 5:18 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 6, 2014 11:08 A.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Egyptian officials expect the Israeli negotiating delegation to arrive in Cairo within a week to continue indirect talks, sources in Egypt said.

Egypt has been in contact with both Palestinian and Israeli officials this week to determine a date for further talks following a cessation to hostilities last week.

Egypt is expecting the arrival of PA security teams in Cairo for training in order to deploy at the Rafah crossing and along the Gaza-Egypt border, the sources said.

On Monday, Israel's Channel 10 TV said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would not send a delegation to Egypt for further talks.

Israel and Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip ended over seven weeks of fighting last Tuesday with a long-term ceasefire agreement in which Israel agreed to ease its siege on the coastal enclave and expand the fishing zone off its coast.

Further negotiations regarding other key unresolved issues were to take place in Egypt a month later.

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry met for over two hours with Palestinian negotiators for "constructive" talks on future relations with Israel, a US official said.

During the talks, senior PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat submitted a proposal to end Israel's decades-long occupation and establish a Palestinian state, including a timetable for Israel's withdrawal of military forces.
