Israeli media said that “difficulties are facing the talks between Egypt and Israel to restart flights between Israel and the Egyptian city of Sharm El Sheikh.”
And the Israel Broadcasting Corporation reported that Cairo rejected an Israeli request for the presence of armed Israeli security forces on Egyptian soil to secure the tourist groups.
The authority added that Israel wanted Israeli security personnel to accompany Israeli flights to the Egyptian resort.
A high-ranking Israeli security delegation arrived in Sharm el-Sheikh on the Red Sea on Tuesday, where it continues talks with the Egyptian authorities in order to arrange the restart of flights between Israel and Egypt.
Flights between Israel and Sinai have been suspended since 2015 due to the security situation in the Sinai Peninsula.
Usually hundreds of thousands of Israeli tourists travel to Sinai, especially Sharm el-Sheikh.
Last March, Tel Aviv reopened the Taba border crossing between Israel and Egypt.
