Did Olmert meet with Siniora?

The 'Palestinian' Ma'an News Agency is reporting that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert met with Lebanese President Fouad Siniora, political advisor to the Egyptian president, Osama El Baz and the head of Saudi national security, Prince Bandar, during the Eid-al-Fitr feast two months ago in Sharm el-Sheikh.
The source, a specialist in Israeli affairs, added that the meeting, which was held in the residence of the Egyptian president, lasted for five hours in which the participants discussed mutual coordination and cooperation between Egypt, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Israel and its allied forces in Lebanon, to jointly face the Tehran-Damascus axis and the coalition of militant groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad.

The Israeli Prime Minister allegedly told the Lebanese Prime Minister that the international presence in southern Lebanon, and the American support given to their friends, "has created a path, along which lies an unprecedented opportunity to get rid of the Iranian and Syrian allies in Lebanon", the source added.

The source also confirmed that Lebanese Prime Minister Siniora told his Israeli counterpart that his government insists on the spread of law and order throughout the country, and to dismiss and disarm any militia, including the arms of Hezbollah, and to end the presence of any groups or people who are pro-Iran or pro-Syria.
For the record, Olmert's office is denying the report.
