CAIRO – 29 September 2022: Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shoukry voiced Thursday Egypt's deep concern over the current Israeli escalations and the adverse impact they are having on ongoing Egyptian efforts to maintain the Palestinian-Israeli truce and revive the moribund Middle East peace process.

During a meeting Thursday with President of the Palestinian National Council (PNC) Rouhi Fattouh, the minister reviewed the outcome and decisions of the PNC's recent meetings, along with the latest developments in the Palestinian arena, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid said.

In this regard, the PNC's head referred to the rapid deterioration in the security situation in the occupied Palestinian lands, as well as the mounting tension caused by the almost daily Israeli acts of violence against the Palestinians and aggression on sacred sites especially those located in Al Quds, the spokesman added.

According to the spokesman, Shoukry reiterated Egypt's full support to the Palestinians' rights, including the right to establish their independent state with Al Quds (East Jerusalem) as its capital, in line with relevant international legitimacy resolutions.

Meantime, the foreign minister updated Fattouh on all contacts and drives made by Egypt, on the sidelines of his participation in the United Nations (UN) General Assembly's meetings in New York this month, to garner support for the Palestinians and assuage their sufferings due to the continued occupation and the difficult economic and humanitarian conditions they are currently facing, he added.
