JERUSALEM, Israel - Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanayahu will meet with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak next Sunday in Cairo.
The two leaders will discuss the Iranian nuclear program, remarks by Arab League General Secretary Amr Moussa calling on member nations to reject normalization with the Jewish state, restarting Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, and the release of IDF (Israel Defense Forces) Cpl. Gilad Shalit, imprisoned by Hamas since the group kidnapped him in June 2006.
Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, who cancelled a planned trip to Israel, may also meet with Netanyahu and Labor MK (member of Knesset) Binymin Ben-Eliezer, who will accompany the prime minister.
Suleiman has been unable to mediate a prisoner swap with Hamas for Shalit's release.
Last week, exiled Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal, who traveled to Cairo for meetings on reconciliation with the PA's Fatah faction and on the prisoner exchange for Shalit - said Hamas could keep Shalit imprisoned for the next 20 years.
No one, not even the International Red Cross, has been permitted to visit Shalit since his kidnapping.
