Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry assured so during a meeting with Azam Al Ahmed, member of the Central Committee of the Palestinian Fatah Movement.

According to the official statement, the minister referred to Cairo’s moves and diplomatic contacts to contain the attacks, especially in the Gaza Strip, as well as to the efforts to negotiate a ceasefire between the parties involved in the conflict.

‘Our political leaders have orientations to contribute to the urgent restoration of stability, reduce bloodshed and coordinate with the Palestinian people to determine their needs and how to support them,’ Shoukry noted.

The foreign minister noted that the resumption of peace negotiations is the main path to move towards the two-State solution, with Palestine on the 1967 borders and East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with international legitimacy.

Al Ahmed, on behalf of the Palestinian people and leadership, appreciated Egypt’s support and its ‘tireless’ steps to end the current crisis, as well as President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s initiative to donate 500 million dollars for the reconstruction of Gaza.

Other of Egypt’s actions for its Palestinian neighbors include the opening of the Rafah border crossing to receive victims of Israeli bombings, and to send 65 tons of humanitarian aid to the coastal enclave.
