The Jerusalem Post reports: A high-ranking Israeli delegation met with Egyptian officials on Sunday in Cairo, according Egyptian media reports.

The two sides reportedly discussed restarting the frozen Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and other matters of mutual interest.

The London-based newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported that the Israeli delegation arrived in a special plane that left Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion Airport and was expected stay in Cairo for only a few hours.

In June, Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi (pictured) called for Israel and the Palestinians to return to the negotiating table saying “in Egypt we took this step 40 years ago (the 1979 Israel-Egypt peace treaty) and the results were astounding. We can take another step in this direction with enough diplomacy and persuasion.”
