Israeli Ambassador to Egypt Gives Rare Egyptian Interview


Ynetnews reports: Israeli Ambassador to Egypt Haim Koren gave a rare interview to Egyptian journalists in his residence in Cairo on Tuesday, and surprisingly, the transcript of the interview was published, and what’s more, the journalists were not afraid to expose the fact that they had spoken to the representative from Israel.

On the Israeli Embassy in Egypt’s Facebook page, the entire transcript was published next to a picture of Ambassador Koren with the flags of both Israel and Egypt.

“We respect the President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, because he is an open president who is interested in bringing stability to the region in general and Egypt in particular, and because he knows the face of the Middle East has changed, and knows the experiences of Egypt the best, and the experiences of Israel,” Koren said to the journalists, one of them from important government newspaper “Al-Ahram.”
