Mubarak Invites Livni to Cairo

Israel’s foreign minister will meet in Cairo with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak at his invitation.

Tzipi Livni and Mubarak will meet Thursday, her office announced. Mubarak’s invitation came during a phone conversation Monday between Livni and her Egyptian counterpart, Ahmed Aboul Gheit.

The meeting will take place in the Egyptian capital instead of the Sinai resort town of Sharm el-Sheik, which is where Mubarak usually meets with Israeli officials.

Livni and Mubarak are scheduled to discuss a new cease-fire between Hamas and Israel, and the increasing rocket attacks and reprisals between Israel and Hamas, as well as the Israel-Palestinian peace negotiations.
