BRUSSELS - 31 January 2018: An emergency meeting of the international committee coordinating Palestinian development aid kicked off Wednesday at the headquarters of the European Union Commission in Brussels.

The meeting, attended by Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, is held upon a European initiative in light of the latest developments with regard to Al Quds issue.

The agenda of the meeting includes discussing the future of the Palestinian-Israeli peace process, means of maintaining the consistency of the international stance on the Palestinian cause in addition to reviving negotiations on the two-state solution.

The get-together is also set to probe means of pushing forward the inter-Palestinian reconciliation via providing support for the country’s national institutions and enabling them to reinstate control over the Gaza Strip, as outlined in the Cairo agreement signed in October 2017.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini chairs the meeting along with Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soreide.
