Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has promised to raise the issue of Palestinian statehood with U.S. President Donald Trump during his scheduled visit to Washington next month.

He made these assertions in a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo.

Al-Sisi also confirmed his country’s desire to reach a just solution of the issue and Palestinian state should be established with East Jerusalem as its capital.
