Al-Sisi Draws High Marks for Cheerful Meeting with Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el Sissi in New York

Sisi met with a number of Jewish leaders in NY and discussed with them the USA efforts to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Egyptian officials said president El Sisi saw the 9pm meeting with Mr Netanyahu as an opportunity to discuss the resumption of the overall peace process.

Although Egyptian President Abdel Fatteh al-Sisi doesn't fare as well among the human rights activists, he is drawing high marks for his willingness to interact publicly with Jews and Israelis.

It followed mediation in Cairo between Mr Abbas' Fatah party and its arch-rival, Hamas. They twice met for closed-door talks in 2016.

During the 90-minute meeting at the Palace Hotel, the Egyptian and Israeli leaders engaged in "a comprehensive discussion about the problems of the region", according to a statement by the Israeli Prime Minister's Office (PMO).

Following talks with Egyptian officials in Cairo last week, Hamas said that it had dissolved its administrative committee running Gaza and agrees to hold general elections in order to end the decade-long split, a move that was welcomed by Fatah officials.

The Brotherhood was designated a terrorist organisation after Sisi, the former army chief, led the military ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.

The Egyptian president added that a strong relationship between Egypt and the USA would enhance peace and security in the Middle East.

"We can repeat this experience and this excellent step once again - the peace and security of the Israeli citizens together with the peace and security of the Palestinian citizens", Sisi said.

Trump's aides - led by his Middle East envoy and son-in-law Jared Kushner and senior worldwide negotiations aide Jason Greenblatt - have been shuttling between leaders from the two sides in recent months.

Mr El Sisi also held meeting with New York-based and other American groups that have a strong interest in developments in the region.

Trump has described peace between Israelis and Palestinians as "the ultimate deal".

Trump visited Israel and the occupied West Bank in May.
