Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry spoke early on Sunday by telephone with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Al-Safadi about the latest developments concerning last week's Palestinian reconciliation agreement, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry announced.

According to the Egyptian Foreign Ministry's statement, the two ministers also discussed the impact of the reconciliation on prospects of resuming the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, which last broke down in 2014 over the continued construction of Israeli settlements.

Shoukry and El-Safadi also discussed Jordanian-Egyptian bilateral relations.

Last week, rival political Palestinians factions Fatah and Hamas reached an agreement of reconciliation after months of Egyptian talks with Hamas in Cairo.
