WASHINGTON – Ties between Israeli and Egypt have not been seriously hurt following the ascension of an Islamist-led government in Cairo, according to Israel’s former envoy to the country.

“Relations between Israel and Egypt have not really suffered with the change of regime in Egypt,” assessed former Israeli ambassador to Egypt, Shalom Cohen, at an event at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy Friday.

He said that while the political leadership, headed by President Mohammed Morsi, a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, has distanced itself from Israel, the countries continue to work closely on practical matters.
