Tillerson in Egypt: U.S. committed to Middle East peace process

U.S. committed to Middle East peace process
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, meeting with Egypt's foreign minister Monday in Cairo, said the United States remains committed to the peace process in the Middle East amid its controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.


Tillerson began a five-nation visit to the region Monday -- with stops later in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Kuwait. A visit to Israel is not planned.

"In the announcement President Trump made regarding Jerusalem, he also made two very important points, as well, one of which was, he was not advocating for any change to the status quo as to the oversight of the holy sites, recognizing the proper role of existing authorities," Tillerson said at a joint news conference with Egyptian Foreign Minister Shoukri. "And the second is that the final boundaries of Jerusalem are yet to be determined and will be decided among the parties."
