Hours after Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said that an expansion of his country’s military forces in the Sinai Peninsula “does not threaten anyone” in the Middle East, and he expressed a commitment to the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt, Morsi was informally invited to Israel by the Jewish state’s foreign minister.

“Peace must be expressed,” Avigdor Lieberman said at a legal conference in Tel Aviv. “That’s why I hope to see President Morsi inviting official Israeli representatives, visiting Jerusalem as a guest of President Peres, and being interviewed by the Israeli media.”

Earlier in the day, while speaking with Reuters, Morsi reiterated his position that the peace treaty signed in 1979, which has brought a relative amount of stability between the Arab world’s most populous state, and Israel, was not in jeopardy under his leadership.
