Egyptian foreign minister Nabil al-Arabi has said ending the five-year siege on the Gaza Strip is a priority in Egypt.

GAZA (Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – Egyptian foreign minister Nabil al-Arabi has said ending the five-year siege on the Gaza Strip is a priority in Egypt.

The Palestinian ministry of foreign affairs and planning said in a press release Tuesday that it received a letter from the Egyptian FM praising bilateral relations between the two countries and confirming that ending the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip and opening the Rafah border crossing are some of the country’s priorities.

Separately, the Palestinian ministry of foreign affairs and planning said it has made extensive contacts with Egypt in an effort to ensure that stranded Palestinians returning from Libya can transit Egypt on their way home to the Strip.

The ministry also sent a cable consoling the foreign ministry in Japan and assuring that the Palestinians stand by the people of Japan in their plight.
