"The Vice President is looking forward to meeting with the leaders of Egypt, Jordan, and Israel to discuss ways to work together to fight terrorism and improve our national security", Farah said.

"The Times" report contains allegations regarding Egypt's position on the Jerusalem issue mentioned in the so-called "audio recordings.' It is inappropriate for The New York Times, a reputable newspaper, to publish such allegations", the Egyptian government said in a statement.

A statement by the State Information Service said: "Egypt's positions on worldwide issues are not derived from alleged leaks from an anonymous source". It added that Egypt's positions are conveyed by the President, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and in official state statements.

On Saturday, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi met with Arab foreign ministers from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, the UAE and the Palestinian Authority as well as Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit to discuss seeking worldwide recognition of eastern Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital.

In the report, an officer identified as Cpt. "Hamas would be reborn once more".

Experts say that alligators nearly instinctively know when the pond is about to freeze over. On Tuesday, the animal sanctuary posted a second update, showing the ice beginning to thaw.

According to Sunday's statement, Azmi Megahed, a news anchor said to have also been on the call, had never heard of Kholi and did not make any of the comments attributed to him by the Times.

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 statement further claimed that the government did not know who Kholi was. But, he added, "After that, this thing will become a reality".

Kholi said conflict with Israel was not in Egypt's best interest, and that Palestinians should recognise Ramallah, a West Bank town that houses the Palestinian Authority, as their capital.

The article claimed it is common practice for Egyptian intelligence officers to brief talk show hosts about what the state wants to be said or left unsaid in the mass media.

United Nations deputy envoy arrives in Yemen's rebel-held capital
- Saudi Arabia's Royal Air Force says two of its pilots whose fighter jet crashed during an operation in Yemen have been rescued. The GPC did not mention the Houthis, the group with which Saleh made a coalition.

The other calls were with Mofid Fawzy, who denied speaking to el-Kholi, and with Egyptian singer and actress Youssra. It also reflected concern regarding the impact of the United States move on the stability of the region and regarding its "extremely negative" impact on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

The status of Jerusalem has always been a central issue in the decadeslong Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

But after Trump announced on December 6 that his administration had made a decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, breaking with decades of USA policy, Abbas and others canceled their meetings.

Egypt was among one of the first countries to criticise the decision by US President Donald Trump, which prompted widespread worldwide condemnation and deadly protests in the occupied Palestinian territories.
