Kerry urges Hamas to accept Egyptian peace proposal

US Secretary of State John Kerry and Egypt''s Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri talk before making statements to reporters after Kerry met with Shukri and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi at the presidential palace in Cairo.

US Secretary of State John Kerry urged Hamas to seek peace negotiations based on an Egyptian truce proposal that the Islamist militant group has rejected.

"There is a framework [...] to end the violence and that framework is the Egyptian initiative," Kerry said at a joint news conference with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri.

After meeting the president of Egypt, a country which has mediated in the Arab-Israeli conflict in the past, Kerry said he held constructive talks with top Egyptian officials in a bid to end fighting between Israel and Hamas.

He said he would keep working for a ceasefire in coming days.
