WASHINGTON, April 2, 2017 (WAFA) – The Egyptian presidency announced Sunday that the Palestinian cause will always remain top priority in Egypt's foreign policy.
"Egypt has saved no efforts to reach a comprehensive settlement based on an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders," spokesman for Egyptian presidency Alaa Yousef told reporters in Washington.
The spokesman added that the Egyptian President Abul Fattah al-Sisis, who is currently in an official visit to the United States, will brief the US President Donald Trump about Egypt's stance regarding Trump's intention to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
"President Sisi will also exchange views with the Trump administration on the current conflicts in the Middle East," the spokesman revealed.
Yousef also said that the US-Egyptian relations have always played a key role in supporting peace stability in the Middle East.
In addition to his meeting with Trump, Sisi, who arrived in Washington Saturday, will also meet with US Congressmen, businessmen and representatives of major US companies.
"The visit is of high importance as it comes in light of growing challenges in the Middle East, especially that of terrorism," the spokesman affirmed.
