Egypt hosts five-party meeting in push for calm

The Arab Republic of Egypt is hosting a five-party meeting today to promote dialogue between the Palestinian and Israeli sides and to stop all unilateral measures and the escalation to pave the way for an atmosphere that contributes to the resumption of the peace process.

Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zeid, a spokesman for the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, said that the five-way meeting will be held in Sharm El-Sheikh, with the participation of high-profile political and security officials from Egypt, Palestine, Israel, Jordan and the United States, within the framework of regional and international efforts aimed at achieving calm in the Palestinian and Israeli arenas.

The Sharm el-Sheikh meeting builds upon the discussions and the understandings reached in the five-part meeting on February 26 in Aqaba, Jordan, Abu Zeid added in a press statement.

He explained that regional and international actors are participating in the meeting in order to develop mechanisms for follow-up and implementation of the results of those meetings.
