Egypt want to resume Gaza truce talks

Cairo - Egypt is to invite Israeli and Palestinian delegations to return to Cairo to resume talks on a long-term truce for Gaza, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas announced on Saturday.

“Egypt is going to invite delegates to return to the negotiating table to consider a long-term truce,” Abbas said after talks with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
