Israel angry over exclusion from official meetings in Egypt

Israeli Flag.

Israel’s Ambassador in Cairo has complained to the Egyptian government about his exclusion from diplomatic briefings and press releases, Quds Press reported on Friday.

David Govrin sent his complaint in a letter to the Foreign Ministry in Cairo. “In spite of the strategic relations between the two countries,” he fumed, “representatives of embassies in Egypt are invited except the representative of Israel’s Embassy.”

Govrin expressed his particular disappointment that he was not invited to a meeting held by the Foreign Ministry concerning the war on terror. He said that nobody from his embassy was invited even though the Israeli air force had hit ISIS targets in the Sinai Peninsula.

A source at the ministry refused to comment about the issue, and pointed out that the Israeli complaint is being reviewed.

Relations between Egypt and Israel have improved recently following a meeting between President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the United States.

    Zionists think they are entitled to everything. When they have been collaborating, aiding and providing arms to daesh this entire time. The ONLY reason they are upset about this, is because they cant warn ISIS of whatever counter measures Egypt is planning.

    The only reason why these Europeans are squatting on Arab land is because they were detested back home in Europe. How is the problem of the Arabs? Is the white man Israelite?
    Why on earth?

    Why would a Mileikowsky feel that he has any connection to the Middle East?

    Are the Ashkenazi = Khazars? What else are they?

    Are they then Lithunian or Hungarian or Ukranian?

    You have to tell us what you are?


  • It is strange, because I thought Sisi was relatively pro-Israel, or at least favored cooperation with them.
