Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said Wednesday that he is working with US President Barack Obama to get Israel and the Palestinians to talk about the similarities between them, rather than the differences.

In an interview with TIME Magazine, Morsi praised Obama, saying he had "been very helpful, very helpful. And I can say, really, that his deeds coincide with his intentions."

Morsi said that he had been speaking to Obama about efforts to cement the cease-fire that ended eight days of hostilities between Israel and Gaza terror groups last week.

"We’ve been talking together about the cease-fire. That’s very important. Then we can talk about differences between Palestinians and Israelis. It’s not easy. It’s very difficult. Both sides are talking about differences. We want them to talk about similarities...We are now doing this job as much as we can," Morsi told TIME.
