Egypt calls for ‘careful’ examination of Trump plan

Egypt calls for a “careful” examination of the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan unveiled by US President Donald Trump.

“Egypt calls on the two concerned parties to undertake a careful and thorough examination of the US vision to achieve peace and open channels of dialogue,” the foreign ministry says in a statement.

It says negotiations would aim for “a comprehensive and just peace and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.”
