Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmad Abul-Gheit said on Thursday that the peace process is in need of a serious Israeli partner.
Abul-Gheit added in statements to the press, in his first comments on the Israeli elections' results, that the current situation in the region requires awareness that peace and stability will not be achieved unless all international resolutions are implemented and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
He added that the next Israeli government should take serious steps in cooperating with Egypt, the Palestinian Authority and the international community to achieve peace in the region.
Abul-Gheit clarified that the immediate halt of Israeli aggression, decreasing the number of checkpoints and barriers could open the door for negotiations between the two sides.
