Egypt official: No date set for renewed ceasefire talks

Sept. 2, 2014 10:28 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 3, 2014 10:24 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Egypt is in contact with Palestinian and Israeli officials to determine a date for further ceasefire talks following a cessation to hostilities last week, an Egyptian diplomat said.

Wael Atiyeh, Egypt's ambassador to Palestine, told Ma'an that a date has not yet been set for a return to negotiations and an agenda still needs to be finalized for upcoming meetings in Cairo, he added.

Egypt and Palestinian officials are still discussing arrangements to deploy presidential guards at the Rafah crossing and along Gaza's border with Egypt, he added.

On Monday, Israel's Channel 10 TV said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would not send a delegation to Egypt for further talks.

Israel and Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip ended over seven weeks of fighting last Tuesday with a long-term ceasefire agreement in which Israel agreed to ease its siege on the coastal enclave and expand the fishing zone off its coast.

Further negotiations regarding other key unresolved issues were to take place in Egypt a month later.
