Reports in Egypt: Saudi Agreement Requires Israeli Cooperation

Ynetnews reports: Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram reported Monday that representatives from Israel and Egypt have recently met to discuss the maritime borders between Egypt and Saudi Arabia, which could be a major topic of concern, following Cairo and Riyadh’s recent deal, transferring control over two Islands in the Gulf of Eilat to the Saudis.

According to the reports, Cairo updated Israel of all developments relating to the new borders. Israeli officials said that the topic is being researched by the Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs in order to assess its implications.

According to the officials, changes to the peace accords may not be necessary, since the Islands belonged to Saudi Arabia anyway, and Saudi Arabia is committed to the accords.

Egyptian representatives told their Israeli counterparts that the signed agreement includes a commitment by Saudi representatives to respect all of Egypt’s peace accord obligations to Israel. The Egyptian parliament will have to approve the island deal before it becomes official.
