Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi put forth a proposal for a potential future Palestinian state to be demilitarized, accompanied by a temporary international security presence. 

Sisi emphasized the need for guarantees to ensure security for both the Palestinian state and Israel.

Security Guarantees Through International Forces:

During a joint news conference with Spanish and Belgian Prime Ministers, Sisi suggested the possibility of deploying forces such as NATO, United Nations, Arab, or American forces to oversee security until stability is achieved for both the nascent Palestinian state and Israel.

Sisi highlighted the elusive nature of a political resolution, stating that the vision for a Palestinian state based on the June 4, 1967, borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, remains unattained.
