PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron, his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah el-Sissi and Jordan’s King Abdullah II will hold talks today aimed at seeking a ceasefire in the conflict between Israel and the Gaza-ruling terror group Hamas, the French presidency says.

Sissi is currently in Paris for summits on Africa while Abdullah will join by video conference, the Elysee says.

“The trilateral meeting aims above all to work for a rapid ceasefire and prevent the conflict from extending,” the presidency says.
