U.S. vice president to visit Jordan during Mideast tour

Pence plans to leave Washington on January 19 and arrive in Egypt on January 20 to meet with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

A statement issued by the State Information Service said; "Egypt's positions on worldwide issues are not derived from alleged leaks from an anonymous source".

A statement by the State Information Service said: "Egypt's positions on global issues are not derived from alleged leaks from an anonymous source".

In the report, an officer identified as Cpt.

"An Intifada [uprising] would not serve Egypt's national security interests because an Intifada would revive the Islamists and Hamas", el-Kholi said. "Hamas would be reborn once more", Capt. Kholi explained.

Cairo voiced anger on Sunday over a New York Times article that said the paper had obtained recordings of an Egyptian intelligence officer directing talk show hosts to play down the United States recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and that Palestinians should content themselves with a capital in Ramallah. "It is not appropriate that such a large newspaper like the New York Times publishes a story like this", the authority said in a statement.

An Egyptian newspaper vendor holds copies of local newspapers fronted with a picture of President-elect Donald Trump with Arabic headline that reads, "Trump era", November 10, 2016.


The statements attributed to Kholi "can fit in with the desire to control the flames", he said.

The New York Times reported Saturday it had obtained recordings of phone calls made by a man claiming to be Captain Ashraf al-Kholi to presenters Mofid Fawzy, Saeed Hassaseen and Azmi Megahed, along with Egyptian actress Yousra. But, he added, "After that, this thing will become a reality".

Israel considers Jerusalem its undivided capital but Palestinians want a capital for a future state in the eastern part of the city, which Israel captured during the 1967 Six Day War.

In response, Shukri asserted that, "Egypt's position is consistent and has not changed in support of the Palestinian people", adding that the accusations were "baseless" and politically motivated. It also reflected concern regarding the impact of the USA move on the stability of the region and regarding its "extremely negative" impact on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

The visit, initially scheduled in December previous year, was postponed as protests erupted after the USA recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

So did Saudi Arabia, even though Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman privately tried to convince Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas to accept a Palestinian state without a capital in Jerusalem - a fact confirmed to The New York Times by Arab, European and Palestinian Authority officials who quoted Abbas. Trump stressed that he was not specifying the boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in the city, and called for no change in the status quo at the city's holy sites.
