Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el Sissi in New York

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi urged Palestinians to overcome their differences and be ready to co-exist with each other and with Israelis in safety and security.

Although Egyptian President Abdel Fatteh al-Sisi doesn't fare as well among the human rights activists, he is drawing high marks for his willingness to interact publicly with Jews and Israelis.

Egypt has been spearheading mediation efforts between Palestinian Islamist group Hamas and President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement to build Palestinian unity. Pictures of the meeting showed the two men seemingly conversing well with each other.

"When we say we want to rectify the religious rhetoric, it means that we want to filter the false ideology and the misconceptions", Sisi explained.

Trump also met Netanyahu on Monday, and repeated that an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal was "possible", saying his administration would do its utmost to push it.

"We can repeat this experience, this excellent step once again, together with the peace and security of the Palestinian citizens", he said.

There were reports Mr Netanyahu and his team were dismayed that Mr Trump emphasised the issue during the meeting.

"We as Egyptian government are responsible for securing Egyptians that did not have the ability to sleep that night without retaliating against what happened", he concluded.

Egypt's more than 40 years of peace with Israel can be repeated in the Palestinian territories if Palestinian Arabs are willing to overcome their differences with Israelis and one another, Egyptian President Abdul Fatah Sisi said in an address to the UN General Assembly on September 19.

Egyptian state press said the NY meetings would further reconciliation.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he believed "we really have a chance" to make peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

The meeting between Netanyahu and Sisi will be the first to be held openly. The attendees reportedly included influential religious ministers, officials and former members of the military, as well as leaders of research centres and United States think tanks.
