British Foreign Secretary David Cameron arrived at Cairo International Airport on a visit to Cairo during which he was monitoring the arrival of British aid to Gaza.

Informed sources at Cairo Airport said that the British Foreign Minister arrived on a private plane, and Cairo Airport authorities completed his arrival procedures from the airport’s VIP lounge, where he was received by representatives of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry.

The British Foreign Office said that Minister David Cameron will travel to Jordan and Egypt this week to push for a permanent ceasefire and more humanitarian truces in Gaza.

The ministry added in a statement that British Minister of State for the Middle East, Tariq Ahmed, will accompany Cameron on his second visit to the region “in order to make progress in efforts to secure the release of all hostages, increase aid to Gaza, and end Hamas’ rocket attacks and threats to Israel.”

In Jordan, Cameron will meet his counterpart Ayman Safadi, and in Egypt, he will go to Al-Arish to monitor the arrival of British aid to Gaza.

Britain, the European Union, and more than a dozen partner countries, including Australia and Canada, called on Israel to take immediate and concrete steps to address settler violence in the West Bank.
