Egypt’s General Intelligence Service (GIS) Chief Abbas Kamel started an official visit, on Wednesday, to Ramallah in Palestine and Tel Aviv in Israel, for talks with both sides to push the peace process forward.
The visit comes upon directives of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.
Kamel met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah. He conveyed a reassuring message from President Al-Sisi to the Palestinians, promising to continue efforts to achieve stability in Palestine and the region.
The Palestinian President valued the Egyptian efforts to support the Palestinian people.
Kamel also met with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his National Security Adviser. The two sides discussed efforts to advance the peace process and measures to maintain stability in all the Palestinian territories. They also addressed the latest developments in the Egyptian-Israeli relations.
In May, Egypt mediated a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian movement Hamas, ending an 11-day assault on Gaza.
In June, President Al-Sisi held a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, after the latter assumed his duties.
Egypt fully supports all ongoing endeavours to reach a comprehensive solution to the Palestine-Israel conflict. This is with a view to achieving peace in the Middle East.
Egypt has allocated $500m to the reconstruction process in Gaza, with the participation of specialised Egyptian companies.
