Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi yesterday spoke with his Palestinian counterpart, Mahmoud Abbas, to discuss the latest developments in the Palestinian issue; including Cairo's continued efforts to revive the Palestinian- Israeli peace process, the Egyptian presidency said in a statement.

Al-Sisi pointed out that the Egyptian efforts aim to revive the peace process in order to restore the Palestinian people's rights and enhance regional security and stability, the statement explained.

During the call the two sides agreed to continue intensive bilateral consultation and coordination during the coming period on various issues of common interest.

Since April 2014, negotiations between the Israeli and Palestinian sides have been suspended due to Israel's refusal to stop settlement expansion, release Palestinian prisoners, and respect its commitment to the two-state solution.
