Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni will soon visit Cairo for talks on the Arab peace initiative, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abdul Gheit said on Saturday night. "The trip was planned before the publication of the Winograd report and it is still possible," Gheit told Al-Arabiya. Gheit went on to say that the current situation in Israel would not allow him or the Jordanian foreign minister to make their planned trip Jerusalem, a trip that he emphasized was approved by the Arab League as part of its efforts to convince Israel to accept the Arab plan. Livni's office said there were ongoing discussions about a possible visit to Egypt, adding that the foreign minister may make the trip on Thursday.
