Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi told the US’s Jared Kushner in Cairo on Thursday that he supports the creation of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, according to a statement.

El-Sisi told the White House special advisor that Egypt supports all solutions that would lead to a just solution for the Palestinian cause and would revive the peace process between the Palestinians and the Israelis according to international law and agreements, and on the basis of the two state-solution.

The president added that having a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital would contribute to restoring stability and opening new horizons for the Middle East and its people.

During the meeting, which came as part of Kushner’s multi-state Middle East tour, El-Sisi and the US official discussed bilateral relations and his keenness to boost those relations and to continue to coordinate and consult with the US administration concerning peace and stability in the Middle East.

Kushner told the president that President Donald Trump is looking forward to boosting bilateral relations.

He also praised the role of Egypt in supporting peace and fighting terrorism in the Middle East, as well the success in its economic reform programme.

Kushner discussed with El-Sisi his talks with the different parties in the region on the peace process.

Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and the head of the General Intelligence Service Abbas Kamel attended the meeting.

Kushner was in Israel on Wednesday where he met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Prior to Jerusalem, he visited Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Kushner, Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt, State Department official Brian Hook and Kushner aide Avi Berkowitz are expected to make stops in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
