United States National Intelligence Director John Negroponte arrived here for a brief visit on Wednesday after meeting in Cairo with Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman to discuss arms smuggling over the Gaza border.
Negroponte is expected to meet here with members of the intelligence community as well. He arrived on the same day as Deputy National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams and Assistant Secretary of State David Welch.
The US officials are scheduled to meet with advisers to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
All three are in the area in advance of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s trip to the United States next month, where he will meet with US President George Bush.
