On Monday, Egyptian foreign minister Sameh Shoukry said that Egypt looks forward to working with international partners to break the stalemate in the Palestinian-Israeli Peace Process.

These remarks came in a joint press conference held in Cairo with the Jordanian, French and German foreign ministers to stimulate peace efforts in the region, and especially the Palestinian issue.

Shoukry added that Cairo has a firm stance on reaching a permanent settlement of the Palestinian issue within the framework of the two-state solution that leads to the establishment of a Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
