Joint announcement on the 9th, “We will make every effort to achieve a ceasefire.”
Emphasis on a two-state solution, including the efforts of the international community and the construction of ‘eight independent states’
Tass and Xinhua news agencies reported that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Russian President Vladimir Putin had a telephone meeting on the 9th (local time) during which the two countries promised to make joint efforts to achieve a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
After the two leaders finished their meeting, the Egyptian President’s Office issued a statement saying, “The presidents of the two countries agreed to continue making serious efforts together to achieve a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.” At the same time, the statement said that it once again emphasized that the international community must take responsibility and jointly deal with this issue.
President El-Sisi and President Putin said, “United efforts by the international community are needed for a comprehensive and fair solution to the Palestinian problem. And the method must be based on a two-state solution,” he said. He also said that it is urgent to establish an independent state in Palestine in accordance with international law and relevant resolutions of the international community, and for the international community to recognize it.
The Egyptian President told President Putin, “The people of the Gaza Strip are experiencing a humanitarian tragedy in which their home has become uninhabitable, and we must prevent this situation from worsening any further,” adding that the Egyptian government has recently made efforts to achieve this goal. Efforts were explained.
Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979 after fighting. Since then, Egypt has played the role of mediator for peace whenever there is conflict or conflict between Israel and Palestine for a long time.
Even after Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel began on October 7, Egypt, along with Qatar and the United States, mediated the exchange of hostages and prisoners held by Hamas and Israel and worked to calm the fighting situation in the Gaza Strip, the Egyptian President’s Office said.
