Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Elaraby was scheduled to meet on Thursday with members of the Israeli Peace Initiative, including former senior Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Mossad officials, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday.

The Israeli Peace Initiative is pushing for the government to take the lead and kick-start the peace process, by adopting a framework for a peace settlement based on the 2002 Arab peace initiative. The basic principles of the Arab peace initiative - normalization of relations between the Arab world and Israel in exchange for an Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 lines and a compromise on the Palestinian refugee issue, would form a framework for the plan, which would then be open for adjustments.

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry invited members of the group to Cairo, including former Shin Bet chief Yaakov Perry, former Mossad chief Danny Yatom and former envoy to the US Danny Gillerman.

The meeting will mark the first public contact between Egyptian officials and Israeli representatives since the ouster of former president Hosni Mubarak in February.
