Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, who congratulates him on retaking the premiership.
The two affirm their mutual desire to continue strengthening bilateral ties, according to an Israeli readout.
They also discuss “international and regional developments,” says the Prime Minister’s Office, often understood to be a reference for the war in Ukraine and the Iran threat.
In August, Sissi spoke to Netanyahu’s predecessor Yair Lapid, who thanked him for Egypt’s role in negotiating a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group, after three days of fighting in and around the Gaza Strip.
The last official visit by Netanyahu to Egypt was in January 2011, when he met then-president Hosni Mubarak, though he reportedly paid a secret, unofficial visit in 2018.
