CAIRO, Oct 26 (MENA) – President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi discussed in a phone call Thursday with Cypriot President Nikos Christodoulides the developments of the Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip.
During the phone call, an agreement was reached on the need to intensify international and regional efforts to stop the escalation in the Gaza Strip; as it is the current priority to avoid it taking on broader dimensions that increase the complexity of the situation, Presidential Spokesperson Ahmed Fahmy said.
