Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed Sunday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas the latest developments in the Palestinian file on the sidelines of the second day of the World Youth Forum being held in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh.
El-Sisi stressed Egypt's support for helping to develop "a strategic vision” that goes beyond "short and temporary solutions" to bring stability to Palestine.
The Egyptian president stressed Egypt's firm position on the "two-state solution, and the establishment of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital."
El-Sisi and Abbas reviewed developments taking place internally, especially the move to hold Palestinian general elections.
The two leaders also discussed bilateral relations between the two brotherly countries, and ways to develop them in various fields.
During the talks, the duo agreed to continue intensive consultations and coordination on issues of common concern, especially in regard to unifying Palestinian stances in a way that contributes to achieving the aspirations of the Palestinian people.
