The foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan joined a senior Palestinian Authority official for a meeting to revive the peace process between the Palestinians and Israel.

Egypt’s foreign ministry said Jordanian, Egyptian and Palestinian intelligence chiefs also took part in the talks, which were held in Cairo on Monday.

It said their discussion touched on efforts to strengthen the truce Cairo brokered in May to end an 11-day war between Israel and Hamas, and reconstruction plans for Gaza.

The meeting “looked into a number of proposals to break the deadlock currently experienced by the peace process”, the foreign ministry said.

Also discussed was ways to identify a “political space” in which to bring about peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians, based on a two-state solution with east Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

Participants in the talks included Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, Jordanian Foreign Affairs Minister Ayman Safadi and Hussein Al-Sheikh, head of the General Authority of Civil Affairs of the Palestinian Authority.

Direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians collapsed in 2014.

Monday’s meeting follows a visit to Cairo earlier this month by Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.

He and Egyptian President Abdel Fatah El Sisi discussed a long-awaited prisoner exchange between Israel and Hamas, the militant Palestinian group that has ruled Gaza since 2007. LINK TO ARTICLE
