Egypt’s president، Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi met on Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu، to discuss the Middle East peace process in their first public talks.

They met in the Palace Hotel in New York City، on the sidelines of an ongoing United Nations General Assembly meeting.

Sisi emphasized the importance of "resuming negotiations between the Israeli and Palestinian sides to reach a comprehensive solution،” according to a statement issued by the president’s office.

The two leaders discussed "ways to resume the peace process and establish a Palestinian state،" the statement said.

A statement by Israeli Prime Minister’s Office following the conclusion of the meeting said the two leaders held a “comprehensive discussion about the problems of the region.”

Peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians have been at a standstill since US-backed talks collapsed in the spring of 2014.

US President Donald Trump، who visited Israel and the occupied West Bank in May، has said he believes he can mediate a final peace agreement that has eluded his predecessors.

Trump too met Netanyahu in New York on Monday ahead of the UN General Assembly and again expressed his hopes for a peaceful settlement.
