Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi discussed the Middle East Peace Process and relations with the US in a meeting with the head of the World Jewish Congress in Cairo on Wednesday.
According to Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Bassam Rady, Sisi's meeting with Ronald S. Lauder was also attended by the head of the General Intelligence Service, Abbas Kamel.
Based in New York, the World Jewish Congress seeks to act as the "diplomatic arm of the Jewish people" in order "to enhance solidarity among Jewish communities throughout the world and, recognising the centrality of the State of Israel to contemporary Jewish identity, to strengthen the bonds of Jewish communities and Jews in the Diaspora with Israel."
Egypt signed a historic peace treaty with Israel in 1979 under late President Anwar Sadat. The Sisi regime maintains strong relations with the settler-colonial state.
