CAIRO, May 31 (Xinhua) -- Egypt and Palestine on Wednesday signed a series of cooperation agreements in the fields of agriculture and desert reclamation in Cairo, the capital of Egypt.

The agreements were signed by Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and his Palestinian counterpart Mohammad Shtayyeh, who is leading a high-level delegation on a three-day visit to Egypt.

The two sides discussed increasing trade volume and enhancing cooperation in the areas of healthcare, education, culture, and electricity connectivity, according to a televised joint press conference.

Affirming Egypt's unwavering support for the Palestinian people and their legitimate rights, Madbouly highlighted the significance of Shtayyeh's visit amidst recurring developments in the occupied Palestinian territories that threaten stability and escalate violence.

"Egypt moves at all levels to achieve calm in Palestine and to bring back peace talks on the ground," Madbouly said.

Shtayyeh stressed that Palestine needs the support of Egypt "now more than at any time," adding that "Palestine is Egypt's partner in ending the Palestinian occupation crisis."

Also on Wednesday, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met with his Palestinian counterpart Riad Malki, expressing concern about the situation in Palestinian territories.

The Egyptian diplomat condemned the escalating anti-Palestinian violence, assaults on Palestinian cities, and the resumption of settlement activities by Israel.

For his part, Malki expressed his aspirations to continue coordination with Egypt, intensifying efforts to defend the rights of the Palestinians and counter Israeli unilateral measures. Enditem
