Additionally, the meeting addressed the regional dynamics, notably the tensions in the Gaza Strip. President Al-Sisi reviewed Egypt’s initiatives to secure a lasting ceasefire in the area, underscoring the international community’s responsibility in this matter.

President Al-Sisi also highlighted Egypt’s extensive efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza’s residents and reiterated the nation’s preparedness to facilitate all international assistance destined for the Strip.

In response, the Cypriot President commended Egypt’s relentless endeavors to de-escalate the situation and its humanitarian contributions, affirming Cyprus’s commitment to continuous coordination with Egypt, particularly given the shared vision of both countries to prioritize establishing peace and ensuring regional stability.
