Cairo (UNA-OIC) – Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry will start later on Sunday a tour that will take him to the Jordanian capital Amman, and the Palestinian central West Bank city of Ramallah.
In a statement released Sunday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez said, during his visit to Amman the Egyptian minister will meet with King Abdullah II.
Shoukry will also hold talks with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi on the latest regional developments, as well as the latest development in the Palestinian lands, the spokesman said, adding that Shoukry is set to arrive later in Ramallah, where he will meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Shoukry’s visit to the Palestinian lands comes in line with President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s stand in support of Palestinians’ legitimate right to establish their own state. The visit is also meant to reflect Egypt’s solid stand in support of the Palestinian people, especially amid Israeli occupation’s plans to press ahead with annexation policies, according to the statement.
