Embassy in Cairo won't help with Arad, PM's visit to Sharm

National Security Advisor Uzi Arad will not receive any support from the Israeli Embassy in Cairo in planning Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's upcoming trip to Sharm e-Sheikh, due to sanctions imposed by diplomats over a pay dispute, Israel Radio reported Tuesday.
Arad left Tuesday to meet with Egyptian Intelligence Minister Omar Suleiman.
The diplomats said they would not cooperate with Netanyahu's staff for Arad's trip, nor for Netanyahu's visit to Egypt next week, according to the report. Israeli Ambassador to Egypt Yitzhak Levanon will not meet with the prime minister in Sharm e-Sheikh.
