The Daily News Egypt - - Politics -

Egypt’s Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs Sameh Shoukry headed to Jor­dan on Sun­day to dis­cuss up­dates re­gard­ing the Pales­tinian is­sue with his Jor­da­nian coun­ter­part Ay­man Al-Safadi.

Ways of re­viv­ing peace ef­forts in the Mid­dle East will also be part of both min­is­ters’ dis­cus­sions.

The visit comes within the frame­work of on­go­ing co­or­di­na­tion and con­sul­ta­tion be­tween the two coun­tries on the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in the Pales­tinian is­sue and ways to sup­port the peace process in the Mid­dle East.

Egypt and Jor­dan agreed on the im­por­tance of push­ing for­ward ef­forts for a fi­nal and just set­tle­ment of the Pales­tinian is­sue and the need to en­cour­age the Pales­tinian and Is­raeli sides to re­sume ne­go­ti­a­tions and reach a fi­nal and just so­lu­tion to the is­sue.

Shoukry headed to Is­rael in July and dis­cussed the Is­raeli-Pales­tinian peace process, bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, and re­gional is­sues with Is­raeli of­fi­cials.

In March, the Arab Sum­mit was held in Jor­dan in at­ten­dance of Arab lead­ers to fol­low up on re­gional crises.
