The statement stated that the danger of military escalation in Rafah was also emphasized, and how it would add disaster to the already worsening humanitarian crisis that would affect stability and security in the region.

President Sisi stressed the need for full and adequate access to humanitarian aid, reviewing Egypt’s extensive efforts in this regard.

The two presidents also stressed the need to work to prevent the expansion of the conflict, and stressed the importance of the two-state solution as a means of achieving security, peace and stability in the region.

Biden also held a phone call late Monday with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, whose country has also played a role as a mediator in the conflict.

The Qatari Emiri Diwan said in a statement, “During the call, developments in the situation in the Gaza Strip and the occupied Palestinian territories and the efforts of the two countries to reach an immediate and permanent ceasefire agreement in Gaza were discussed.”
