The office of the Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says he has received an invitation from the Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi for an official visit in the next few weeks.
A statement from Mr Bennett’s office said the invitation was conveyed by the Egyptian intelligence minister during a meeting with the Israeli leader in Jerusalem.
Israel has publicly thanked Egypt for its role in helping mediate the ceasefire that ended the 11-day conflict with Hamas in Gaza in May.
The last official visit by an Israeli prime minister to Egypt took place more than a decade ago when Benjamin Netanyahu met Hosni Mubarak in Cairo.
