Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi stated that the stability of the region depends on international recognition of the Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
During his meeting with the President of Hungary Katalin Novak, in her first visit to Egypt, Sisi outlined his nation’s efforts from the beginning of the crisis up to reaching a humanitarian truce in the Gaza Strip.
President Sisi stressed the importance of reaching a permanent ceasefire and introducing the largest possible amount of aid to the people of Gaza to meet their needs and reduce the extent of their suffering, while ensuring that the conflict does not spread to the West Bank.
Novak expressed her country’s appreciation for Egypt’s role in maintaining stability and peace in the Middle East, whether in working diligently to resolve crises in the region or at the international level through various relevant forums.
Both sides agreed on the need to work towards calm, condemn the targeting of civilians, while rejecting forced displacement and stressing the importance of not expanding the conflict regionally.
