CAIRO – 17 October 2017: Achieving Palestinian reconciliation is an important step towards reviving negotiations between Palestine and Israel in order to reach a fair and inclusive solution to the Palestinian case, stated President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

The statement came during his meeting with the Head of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) Ronald Lauder on Tuesday. The meeting was also attended by Director of the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate (EGID) Major General Khaled Fawzy and the WJC advisor for Middle East Affairs Thaer Mukbel; presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef said in a statement.

During the meeting, they discussed several regional issues, such as which peace process in the Middle East comes as the highest priority, added Youssef.

The meeting reflects Egypt’s keenness on communicating with all parts of the American society in order to boost bilateral understanding of the current challenges faced by the region.

Sisi stressed that Egypt should intensify the coordination with the United States to mobilize international support and urge the concerned parties to be responsive to Egypt’s efforts as they aim to reach political solutions to the many crises in the region.

Lauder praised the strong and deep relations between Egypt and the United States in different fields.

He also expressed his appreciation to Egypt’s efforts in resolving the crisis in the Middle East and in combating terrorism, while striving to build up the economy; referring to the positive signs of revival in the Egyptian economy.

Sisi stated that Egypt is working on preserving its security and stability to provide future generations with a better future; noting that the international community should have a decisive stance against terrorism.

The U.S.-based World Jewish Congress was founded in August 1936 as an international federation of Jewish communities and organizations.

This is not Lauder’s first visit to Egypt this year; in March and December he was welcomed in Egypt for the second time.
