Moussa talked about the need to find a fair and quick solution for the Palestinian problem, and that no peace without the establishment of a Palestinian state. He also refused the say that internal and external forces want Egypt to adopt the Turkish model in terms of the influence of the military; because he prefers Egypt to have a special experience.
