The foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan and Palestine are scheduled to meet in Cairo on Saturday to discuss means of pushing forward with efforts in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Egypt's foreign ministry said on Thursday.
This will be the second such meeting between the three countries to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, with the first round held on 14 May in Jordan's capital, Amman.
The three FMs aim to discuss coordinating the three nations' positions on the peace process ahead of the 72nd Regular Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York next month.
The meeting comes after the recent outbreak of Israeli-Palestinian violence in occupied East Jerusalem last month.
Two Palestinians were recently killed in clashes with Israeli forces as Israeli troops moved to demolish the home of a Palestinian who they say stabbed three Israeli settlers to death in July in the town of Kobar in the occupied West Bank.
Three Palestinians were killed and dozens were injured one day earlier during clashes with Israeli security forces prompted by Israel's installation of metal detectors at the entrances to Al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, in East Jerusalem.
