Netanyahu Meets Egypt's a-Sisi in First Public Forum

Netanyahu Meets Egypt's a-Sisi in First Public Forum”

Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and President Sisi of Egypt met in public for the first time today, raising hopes for a revival of the Middle East peace process. Among the issues facing the assembly this year are North Korea's nuclear developement, violence against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar and the debate over climate change.

For much of the last decade, Egypt has joined Israel in enforcing a land, sea and air blockade of the Gaza Strip, a move to punish Hamas, which has ruled Gaza since a brief Palestinian civil war in 2007.

Netanyahu met with Sisi in January of 2016 in the Aqaba Summit, a secret summit meeting in which Jordanian King Abdullah II and US Secretary of State John Kerry also participated, in order to discuss efforts to try and move ahead with the so-called "peace process" again but the meeting did not result in any progress in the "political process".

El-Sisi, who is now in NY for the 72nd United Nations General Assembly, said that the Middle East has suffered the most from terrorism.

Egypt has become increasingly involved in affairs with the "Israeli" entity.

Sisi told the assembly that for peace to be achieved a Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem have to be formed.

Egypt, which signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, has called for steps to kick-start Israeli-Palestinian talks that have been comatose since 2014.

Netanyahu, for his part, focused his remarks on the Iran nuclear deal and the Islamic Republic's military expansion in the region, but also said "we will discuss the ways we can seize the opportunity for peace between Israel and the Palestinians and Israel and the Arab world".

A damning Trump administration report says Egypt is failing to protect free speech and its minorities, investigate abuses by its forces or grant U.S. monitors access to the conflict-ridden Sinai Peninsula.
