Last week, Abbas informed Egypt that he was willing to participate in a regional or international peace summit in Cairo. However, he stressed that an Egyptian push for peace would not replace the French initiative to revive talks, which Palestine has favored but Israel has strongly opposed. The Palestinian president also asked France, Russia, and Switzerland to attend the summit. He urged Egypt to press Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to freeze the construction of settlements and release Palestinian prisoners ahead of a meeting in Egypt.
