President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said on Wednesday the efforts aiming to settle the Palestinian-Israeli conflict must proceed in line with international terms of reference, the two-state solution and the Arab Peace Initiative.

President El-Sisi made the remarks during his meeting with US Senator Lindsey Graham in Cairo, presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said.

The president asserted Egypt’s support for the various efforts that aim at activating the peace process and resuming negotiations in a way that maintains the Palestinian people’s rights and hopes to establish an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

El-Sisi also affirmed that the settlement of the Palestinian cause will change the current reality in the region and open up prospects for a new stage of security, progress and peaceful coexistence among peoples of the region.

Meanwhile, the US senator lauded the strength of Egypt-US relations, saying he is looking forward to boosting strategic partnership between the two countries in different fields.

Graham expressed appreciation for Egypt’s vital role as a pillar of security and stability in the Middle East and the Arab world.

He also pointed out to Cairo's efforts to confront terrorism, combat extremist ideology and spread the culture of religious tolerance.
