CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi spoke with U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump on Thursday about Egypt's draft resolution on Israeli settlements at the U.N. Security Council, Sisi's office said on Thursday.

"During the call they discussed regional affairs and developments in the Middle East and in that context the draft resolution in front of the Security Council on Israeli settlement," said presidency spokesman Alaa Yousef.

"The presidents agreed on the importance of affording the new U.S. administration the full chance to deal with all dimensions of the Palestinian case with a view of achieving a full and final settlement."
