Egyptian ambassador to Tel Aviv Khaled Azmy said on Thursday that Egypt is committed to achieving a comprehensive and just peace in the Middle East as the only way to ensure lasting stability and prosperity for all the peoples of the region, according to a statement by the Egyptian foreign ministry.

In a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivilin, the Egyptian ambassador said that the peace agreement between Egypt and Israel, which was signed 40 years ago, managed to lower tensions in the region and become one of the pillars of stability in the Middle East.

The statement by ambassador Azmy was made as he presented his credentials to the Israeli president as Egypt's new envoy to Israel.

Azmy stressed the necessity for a two-state solution along the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital.

During the meeting, Azmy reiterated the assertion previously made by Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi that Egypt is ready to exert all efforts to ensure that the Israeli and Palestinian parties achieve peace.

The ambassador added that Egypt is continuing its efforts to prevent the deterioration of the humanitarian situation and the security conditions in the Palestinian territories, and that it is also continuing its international communications to revive the peace process.

Azmy was appointed as Egypt's ambassador to Israel in August, succeeding Hazem Khairat, who served as ambassador to Israel for more than two years.
