"If we can all join forces in order to solve the Palestinian issue by creating hope for Palestinians and assuring security for Israelis, we will be able to write a new chapter that may prove to be more important than the peace accords between Israel and Egypt," Sisi said Tuesday as quoted by The Jerusalem Post newspaper.
The Egyptian leader called on Israel and Palestine to take advantage of this opportunity.
Palestinians seek diplomatic recognition of their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip. Israel has been building settlements on the occupied territories, despite objection from the United Nations.
An international France-backed conference on the Israeli-Palestinian peace was scheduled for May 30, but was delayed until early June, according to the French Foreign Ministry.
