The ministerial group was set up on the sidelines of the Munich Security Council in Febrary 2020 and is known as the Munich’s Quartet Group.
Egypt will continue its “tireless” efforts to restore the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and establish their independent state as per international legitimacy,” Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi told the ministers during a briefing at the end of deliberations Monday in Cairo.
The grouip is mobilizing the international community to recommitt to a two-state solution as a pathway to peace for parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“Settling the Palestinian cause will alter the reality and condition of the entire region for the better,” Sisi said.
The group is charged with adopting a new approach focused, initially, on bringing the parties back to the negotiating table.
Resolving this problem “will open new paths and horizons for regional cooperation between governments and peoples,” an Egyptian presidential spokesperson, Bassem Rady, said in a statement.
The fourth session of the group’s meeting is scheduled to hold in Paris.
