Egypt's Prez met Israel's PM at UN for first public talks
Cairo: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York to discuss the Middle East peace process in their first public talks, his office said on Tuesday. Sisi emphasised the importance of "resuming negotiations between the Israeli and Palestinian sides to reach a comprehensive solution," the statement said. The two leaders discussed "ways to resume the peace process and establish a Palestinian state," the statement said. Peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians have been at a standstill since US-backed talks collapsed in the spring of 2014.
