Cairo: In a significant development, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday met Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh
and discussed ways to bring the stalled peace process between
the Palestinian and the Jewish state back on track.

Netanyahu went straight into talks with regional
broker Mubarak after arriving at Sharm el-Sheikh International
Airport, where he was welcomed by Egypt`s Foreign Minister
Ahmad Abu-al-Ghayt.

Their talks were to focus on the launch of US-brokered
indirect negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, a
process suspended since the Gaza war of December 2008-January
2009. The indirect talks are expected to start within days.

The Israeli premier was accompanied by the chairman of
the National Security Committee Uzi Arad and Industry and
Trade Minister Benjamin Ben Eliezer.
