An Israeli envoy arrived in Cairo Tuesday for a short visit to hold talks with Egyptian officials about the latest developments in Gaza and the situation at Egypt-Israeli border crossings.
Last week, Israeli Foreign Ministry Senior Deputy Director General Rafi Barak arrived in Egypt. He was the first Israeli official to visit Egypt since the 25 January Revolution that ousted former President Hosni Mubarak.
Barak held talks with Egyptian officials on developments in the region, as well as issues of joint interest.
Three security envoys from Israel, who had previously arrived on Monday for talks with senior security officials, have left.
