Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi asserted Egypt’s preparedness to receive and coordinate all international aid to the Gaza Strip.
Egypt underlined the importance of international action to push forward the two-state solution and establish an independent Palestinian state with Al Quds as its capital, the president said, considering this as the way to realise regional peace and security.
President Sisi made the remarks on Tuesday during a meeting with his Cypriot counterpart Nikos Christodoulides.
Presidential Spokesman Ahmed Fahmy said the meeting tackled means of promoting bilateral ties, as well as a host of key files, topped by the energy file.
The talks also tackled regional conditions, including the escalation in the Gaza Strip.
During the meeting, Sisi reviewed Egypt’s efforts to achieve a ceasefire in the enclave, urging the international community to shoulder its responsibility in this regard.
Sisi also highlighted Egypt’s intensive efforts to deliver assistance to the Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, the Cypriot president lauded the strenuous efforts exerted by Egypt to realise truce, asserting his country’s keenness on continued coordination in this regard, especially under a joint vision for achieving regional peace.
