Egypt calls for Israel, Palestine peace talks

 Egypt’s foreign minister is raising the possibility of restarting stalled peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians as part of negotiating a cease-fire in the war that has broken out on the Gaza Strip. 

Foreign minister Sameh Shukri’s comments on Tuesday came at the start of a meeting with US secretary of state John Kerry, who is in Cairo trying to help broker a truce after two weeks of fighting that have killed more than 500 Palestinians and two dozen Israelis. Kerry said all sides needed to address what he described as the complicated underlying issues that have given rise to the latest bout of violence.
