Turkish PM's advisor in Egyptian capital to discuss Gaza ceasefire
Turkish premier's advisor, Ahmet Davutoglu, arrived in Cairo Sunday on a short visit as part of Turkish efforts to end the uninterrupted Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, Kuwaiti news agency reported.

During his stay in Cairo, Davutoglu is expected to share views with Egyptian officials on an Egyptian initiative aiming to stop the destructive war on the enclave.

Turkey has been exerting efforts to pressure Israel to stop its 16-day aggression on the Gazans.

Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recently toured several Arab countries in this respect.

Turkish President Abdullah Gul also put off a planned visit he had intended to pay to Israel.

Ankara also suspended its mediation of indirect peace negotiations between Israel and Syria in protest against the latter's offensive on the Palestinian territory.

Earlier on Saturday, a Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) team arrived in Cairo to meet Egyptian officials on Cairo's ceasefire plan.
