Israel to send ambassador back to Cairo soon
Israel is working with the Egyptian government in order to return its ambassador to Cairo as soon as possible under improved security arrangements, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a press conference in Jerusalem on Saturday evening.
Netanyahu thanked U.S. President Barack Obama for his personal involvement in the efforts to rescue six Israeli security personnel who were trapped inside the embassy building in Cairo early Saturday morning while it was stormed by hundreds of Egyptian protesters, Xinhua reported.
"I asked Obama to help. It was a fateful moment," Netanyahu told reporters. "He exercised all possible means and his influence to assist."
The prime minister said Israel will continue to stick to the peace treaty with Egypt.
