President Al-Sisi Meets Israel’s Netanyahu Publicly For The First Time in New York

Al-Sisi and Netanyahu meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York

Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi met on Monday with Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the first time in public in New York in an attempt to revive the Middle East peace process.

The meeting came ahead of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly.

Egypt’s presidency spokesperson, Alaa Youssef stated that the meeting had witnessed multiple discussions, including ways to revive the Middle East peace process.

Al-Sisi pointed out the efforts Egypt exert in order to resume talks between Palestine and Israel and to reach an inclusive and fair solution to the conflict.

Additionally, Al-Sisi praised the efforts of the US administration and US president Donald Trump to reach a final solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which will create a new and more peaceful reality in the Middle East.

Since Al-Sisi assumed office as president in 2014, Egypt has become increasingly involved to revive the Middle East peace process and keeps on presenting the two-state solution as an inevitable way out of the conflict.

Netanyahu’s office issued a statement saying that the meeting was “comprehensive” and discussed several problems in the region, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Al-Sisi also met with Palestine’s president Mahmoud Abbas on the sidelines of the General Assembly and discussed efforts to advance the peace process.

Netanyahu has said recently that the relations between the Israel and the Arab world have been improving.

In the previous UN General Assembly last year, Al-Sisi also addressed the Arab-Israeli conflict and said that it is the core of instability in the region.
