On May 29 we passed the draft agenda in reftel a to Ayman
Zeineldeen, MFA Deputy Assistant Minister for Arab Affairs,
as well as the text of the invitation that was passed to the
Egyptian CENTCOM representative on April 24 (reftel b).
Zeineldeen said the GOE is interested in the meeting, but
said the Egyptians have yet to determine their delegation.
He said he would contact his MOD counterparts and follow up
with us soon.
