Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi held talks on Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

Official presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef said that the two officials discussed ways to revive the peace process, with Sisi underlining the role Egypt is playing in resuming negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis in order to reach a fair and comprehensive settlement to their conflict.

The settlement will be based on the two-state solution and international resolutions on the dispute, he continued.

Sisi hailed the efforts of the US administration to that end, saying that a fair settlement will lead to a new reality in the Middle East where all peoples can live in stability and security and enjoy development.

For his part, Netanyahu expressed his appreciation of Egypt’s important role in the Middle East and its efforts in combating terrorism, said Youssef.

The meeting was attended by Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri and general intelligence chief Abbas Kamel.
