Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi said on Saturday his government was in touch with both Israelis and Palestinians and there were indications they could “soon” reach a truce, but there were no guarantees.

“There are some indications that there could be a ceasefire soon,” Morsi said at a joint news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, adding that there were still “no guarantees.”

He said his country’s government was in “vigorous” communications with both the Palestinians and Israel.

A senior Hamas official had earlier told AFP his movement was reluctant to agree a truce because it doubted the terms of the ceasefire could be guaranteed.
