In the course of the meeting, Foreign Minister Livni raised the question of the security situation in the Gaza Strip.

With regard to the Arab initiative, the Foreign Minister emphasized the importance of the Arab world's support of the Israel-Palestinian peace process, especially the need for pan-Arab support of moderates in the Palestinian Authority.
Minister Livni indicated Israel's desire to strengthen bilateral ties with Egypt and to increase the number of visits at the ministerial and senior official levels.
