Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is slated to meet with Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in New York this week on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Netanyahu boards a plane Tuesday for a flight to New York, where he will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump, and address the annual UNGA on Thursday.
The appointment with al-Sisi was reported Monday in the Egyptian daily Akhbar al-Youm, according to Israel’s Channel 10 TV News.
Al-Sisi maintains that a “two-state solution” should remain part of any U.S. peace plan proposed to Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and that any plan presented to the two parties should include principles from prior talks between the parties.
According to the report, al-Sisi is also likely to raise the same issues during his expected meeting with President Trump as well.
The report has not been verified by the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, but a senior Israeli official confirmed the report to Reuters.
