“It was a very important and good meeting,” Bennett said before his return to Israel from the one-day trip late Monday. “First and foremost, we created a foundation for deep ties in the future.”
Bennett was the first Israeli prime minister to publicly visit Egypt since his predecessor Benjamin Netanyahu met with former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in 2011 in the same Red Sea resort on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula.
