(MENAFN- Daily News Egypt) US President Joe Biden and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi have agreed to facilitate aid delivery to UN personnel in Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing until a legal mechanism is established to reopen the Rafah crossing from the Palestinian side.

This came during a Friday phone call, as the two leaders addressed the severe shortages of basic necessities in Gaza, including fuel for hospitals and bakeries.

Biden expressed deep appreciation for Egypt's ongoing mediation efforts aimed at securing a ceasefire and truce agreement. The leaders stressed the urgent need to intensify international efforts to ensure the success of negotiations and alleviate the prolonged humanitarian suffering of the Palestinian people.

Both presidents reaffirmed their commitment to a two-state solution in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions, rejected any attempts to displace Palestinians from their land, and supported efforts to prevent further escalation and expansion of the conflict.
