Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi reiterated Egypt’s ongoing efforts to push for a ceasefire between Israel and the Hamas movement.
During a phone call with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, President El-Sisi emphasized the critical need for the utmost restraint to prevent further escalation and the tragic loss of innocent lives. The implications of such an escalation would not be limited to the immediate area, but they would have far-reaching consequences throughout the region.
The phone call focused on the military escalation in the Gaza Strip and its vicinity. President El-Sisi and Prime Minister Sunak agreed on the importance of intensifying efforts to de-escalate the situation and protect civilians on both sides. Moreover, they highlighted the necessity of ensuring the delivery of essential services and humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people in Gaza.
President El-Sisi emphasized the importance of addressing the root causes of the crisis and pursuing a suitable political framework to reach a just, comprehensive, and sustainable solution to the Palestinian issue, following internationally recognized references.
These developments reflect Egypt’s commitment to acting as a mediator and its dedication to achieving peace and stability in the region. As the situation continues to evolve, Egypt remains a key player in efforts to facilitate a ceasefire and address the underlying causes of the conflict. The international community watches closely as these mediation efforts progress.
