Since Al-Sisi assumed office as president in 2014, Egypt has become increasingly involved to revive the Middle East peace process and keeps on presenting the two-state solution as an inevitable way out of the conflict.

The calls between Egypt and Hamas angered Israel.

The Prime Minister's Office said that Netanyahu met with the Egyptian president for an hour and a half and that the two men had a comprehensive conversation about the problems in the region: "President el-Sisi expressed his desire to assist in efforts to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians and in the region", the statement said. Netanyahu also added that as far as he is concerned, "the objective is peace and security". The two Arab leaders discussed the efforts to advance the peace process and relations with Israel in light of the existing tensions since the Temple Mount clashes.

Netanyahu also held several other diplomatic meetings in NY.
