Cohen hails political and security relations between Israel and Egyptian regime
Outgoing Israeli ambassador to Egypt Shalom Cohen hailed the political relations and security coordination between Israel and the Egyptian regime and expressed at the same time his dismay for the absence of cultural relations between the two peoples.
According to different press sources, Cohen told a news conference in Cairo that the political relations with Egypt are of the highest level, citing the visits made by high-ranking Israeli officials to Egypt during the last five years as examples.
The Israeli ambassador highlighted that when it is related to political issues, Israel always finds Egypt ready and eager to give assistance, adding that the Egyptian-Israeli security cooperation has reached an unprecedented level.
The Israeli official, however, expressed disappointment at the Egyptian adversity to Israel and hoped that the cultural relations between the Israeli and Egyptian peoples could improve.
