Egypt called on the United States to recognize Palestinian statehood on Sunday.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi told visiting US Congressman Steve Chabot to "press Congress and the American administration to recognize a Palestinian state," AFP reported.

Such a move, he said, "would correspond with previous statements by the American administration supporting peace based on two states," according to the report.

In addition, the Egyptian foreign minister said the US should "exert efforts to hold an international Middle East peace conference," AFP reported.
