Shoukri: No solution to Palestinian problem without independent Palestinian state on June 4, 1967 borders

Egypt affirms that there is no solution to the Palestinian problem without the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri said on Tuesday.


Egypt rejects any unilateral measures that undermine the two-state solution, Shoukri added during a speech he delivered at the 48th session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), held in Islamabad.

He expressed hope that the AOI would contribute to laying the foundations of stability in Muslim countries.

From this point of view, Egypt underscored the importance of finding a peaceful national solution in Libya, in addition to holding presidential and parliamentary elections simultaneously, Shoukri said.

In the same regard, he called for an exit of all foreign forces and mercenaries from Libya within a specific timeframe, noting that Egypt renews its support for the efforts made by the 5+5 Joint Military Commission.

Meanwhile, the foreign minister said Egypt commended the launch of the OIC’s Women Development Organization whose headquarters is based in Cairo.
