Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit and Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni will meet in London on Friday for the first time after a verbal strife in mid December, Israeli media reported.

A political source in Jerusalem told Israeli news it was meant "to ease differences" between the two, after a verbal strife in mid December.

Livni herself met with Aboul Gheit's top aide, Husam Azacki, in Jerusalem on Sunday.

This reportedly paved the way for the London meeting.

Relations between the two ministries have returned to "normal", the source said.

Egypt has been trying to negotiate a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel for the past few weeks.
