The president of Egypt appreciated on Tuesday Turkey's efforts for the settlement of the Palestinian issue.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said that Turkey's endeavors to solve the Palestinian problem were worth appreciation.

Israeli government's stance on West Bank and continuation of its blockade on Gaza jeopardized the peace process, Mubarak told a joint press conference with Turkish President Abdullah Gul in Ankara.

Mubarak also said that Gul and he discussed bilateral relations, regional issues, developments in the Middle East, Iraq, Yemen and Gulf region, as well as Iran's nuclear program and the discussions this program caused in the region and in the world.
