Egypt hosts five-way meeting to reach cool off situation in Palestinian territories

Egypt hosts a five-way meeting in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh on Sunday as part of regional and international efforts aiming at reaching a cooling off period between the Palestinians and Israelis, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid said.

The meeting in Sharm el Sheikh aims to support dialogue between the Palestinian and Israeli sides to stop unilateral actions and escalation, and break the existing cycle of violence and achieve calm, the spokesman said in a statement.

The meeting, that follows a Feb. 26 US-brokered summit in Jordan, also aims at creating a climate suitable for the resumption of the peace process.

High-level security and political officials representing Egypt, Palestine, Israel, Jordan and the US are taking part in the meeting.
