Cairo — French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius announced on Thursday his intention to visit Egypt, Israel and the Palestinian territories next month to push for restarting the peace process.

Fabius told France Inter, France’s general public radio, that he will put forward a French proposition to restart the negotiations between the two sides “within an international framework”.

“We are for a two-state solution,” Fabius said, stressing the importance of preserving Israel’s security as well as justice for the Palestinians. “Justice was not given to the Palestinians, it must be clear.”

A source within the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said that Fabius will visit Egypt on June 22 to take part in a meeting for the Arab ministerial committee tasked with following up with the Palestinian file at the United Nations.

The meeting will look into a draft resolution scheduled to be submitted to the UN Security Council by France regarding a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the source added.

United States Secretary of State John Kerry launched an attempt to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace process in July 2013, coordinating direct negotiations between both sides. Negotiations collapsed upon reaching a pre-planned deadline in April 2014 with little results.
