Israel strongly condemns Egyptian military maneuvers -- radio

GAZA, Oct 28 (KUNA) -- Israel sent a harsh-toned letter of censure to Egyptian officials over recent military maneuvers that Egypt carried out, Israeli radio reported Tuesday.
"The letter considered the Egyptian military exercises an act against Israel", the radio added.
According to radio statements, the letter was delivered by head of the Defense Ministry's Security-Diplomatic Bureau, Maj. Gen. Amos Gilad who recently visited Cairo and met Egyptian Defense Minister Hussein Tantawi and Intelligence Chief Lt. Gen. Omar Suleiman.
Gilad pointed out to Egyptian officials that Israel is concerned over the absence of cooperation and coordination between the two countries' security bodies, noting that Gilad also went over the issue of imprisoned Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit as well as the Egyptian plans to restore stability along the Israeli boarders with Gaza Strip and boarders between Gaza Strip and Egypt, the radio said.(end) zt.sab KUNA 281141 Oct 08NNNN
