Cairo, 13 Rabi’ul Akhir 1436/3 February 2015 (MINA) – The Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sameh Shoukry, met with the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Robert Serry, in Cairo Monday to discuss the latest crises rocking the occupied Palestinian territories and Gaza.
“The meeting tackled the Palestinian issue in light of latest updates including the new West Bank settlements,” said foreign ministry spokesperson Badr Abdelatty, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
He added that both parties discussed potential ideas to resume the peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israeli occupation based on the mutually agreed upon international treaties and pledges to stop illegal settlement construction.
The conveners exchanged talks on the humanitarian crises rocking the Gaza Strip and possible ways to implement the recommendations previously discussed at the Gaza reconstruction conference.
The meeting further pointed out the role of the UN-run organizations, most notably the UNRWA, in ensuring that the pledged funds be dispatched to the blockaded Gaza Strip at the soonest time possible. (T/P011/P3)
