Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke on the phone with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Monday and thanked him for the country's "security steps taken for the sake of the region and Israel," Army Radio reported. It came after security around Israeli Ambassador to Egypt Shalom Cohen was tightened following the discovery of a plot to assassinate him. Meanwhile, National Security Adviser Uzi Arad headed out to Cairo, with the Prime Minister's Office stressing that his meetings there would have nothing to do with the Gilad Schalit issue. On Sunday, Palestinian media reported that the captured IDF soldier would be released in a prisoner swap deal by September.
