By Manal Abdel Fattah

President Biden spoke today with President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi of Egypt.

The two leaders discussed the deal now on the table to secure the release of hostages together with an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

The President confirmed that the United States together with Egypt and Qatar would work to ensure the full implementation of its terms.

He urged President Al-Sisi to exert all efforts to secure the release of hostages held by Hamas as this is now the only obstacle to an immediate ceasefire and relief for civilians in Gaza.

The President further reiterated the importance of protecting civilian lives and ensuring that Palestinians are not displaced to Egypt or any other location outside of Gaza.

The two leaders reviewed ongoing initiatives to increase the flow of life-saving assistance to the people of Gaza and the President thanked President Al-Sisi for his personal commitment to those efforts throughout the crisis.

They agreed to remain closely coordinated directly and through their teams over the coming days.
