A tripartite summit, involving Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine, will be held in Cairo on Thursday to coordinate positions before the United Nations General Assembly meeting next month.
The summit will include Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, King Abdullah II of Jordan, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. It will discuss building a unified Arab position on resuming talks with the American side on the peace process in the region.
According to the Palestinian News Agency, the summit will urge the US Administration to fulfill its promises to support the two-state solution through practical steps to put an end to the racist settlement policy in Palestinian territories, especially in Jerusalem.
The meeting of the three leaders will address maintaining calm, protecting chances of achieving a just peace, not escalating reprisals by Israel against the Palestinians, especially in Gaza, ending the Palestinian division, and resuming the prisoner exchange between Israel and Palestine.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Cairo on Wednesday.
The tripartite summit comes within the framework of regional and international efforts to maintain calm in the occupied Palestinian territories, and to find a political horizon to achieve a just and comprehensive peace on the basis of the two-state solution, in accordance with the international law and the Arab Peace Initiative.
