Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen rejected on Saturday the displacement of the residents of the Gaza Strip, whether inside or outside the enclave, particularly to the Egyptian territories.
During a meeting in the Egyptian capital Cairo, Sisi and von der Leyen discussed the latest developments of the Israeli military escalation in the Palestinian territories, the Egyptian Presidency said in a statement.
Sisi underscored the importance of an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, the protection of civilians, and the delivery of relief aid to the people in Gaza, who are being subjected to enormous human suffering.
He also emphasized the need for the international community to assume its responsibilities and for the implementation of the resolutions of the UN Security Council and the General Assembly in this regard.
Sisi reviewed Egypt's efforts and role in the reception of wounded Palestinians and the evacuation of foreign nationals.
