Egypt’s Sisi Confirms ‘Wide Range of Cooperation’ With Israel on Security

In a “60 Minutes” interview set to air on CBS this weekend, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi confirmed his country’s military was working with Israel in the fight against ISIS terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula.

“That is correct,” he replied when asked if security ties with Israel were the closest they had ever been since the signing of the peace treaty between the once-enemy states four decades ago. “We have a wide range of cooperation with the Israelis.”

According to CBS, after the interview was conducted, Cairo’s ambassador to the US requested that it not be broadcast, due to questions Sisi was asked about the human rights situation in Egypt.

Nevertheless, CBS said, the full interview will be shown on Sunday at 7 p.m. (US Eastern time).

Israel’s involvement in Egypt’s military campaign against ISIS in Sinai was reported by The New York Times last February
