Netanyahu's visit to Cairo is expected to take place "in the coming weeks", the Israeli daily Maariv noted.

"A bilateral meeting is planned between the economic delegations of Israel and Egypt, where joint economic projects and promotion of business relations between the two countries will be discussed," Maariv said.
