His Majesty also stressed that the only way to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is through the two-state solution, which guarantees the establishment of an independent, sovereign, and a viable Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

King Abdullah said that Jordan is in constant contact with the US, and is working to make the Palestinian issue top the agenda of US President Joe Biden’s visit to the region next month.

According to political analyst Jawad Al-Anani, Abbas’ visit reflects the coordination of position of the two countries, and stressed that the region is heading toward establishing alliances, so an Arab alliance must be reached and time should be invested in resolving the Palestinian issue.

Political analyst Hamada Faraneh said that Abbas’ visit was an occasion for His Majesty to reaffirm Jordan’s support for Palestine, and to stress that the Kingdom will work to make the Palestinian issue a priority on the agenda of the US-Arab summit in Jeddah.

Faraneh said that the meeting took place in order to coordinate Abbas’ position with that of the US president when they meet in Bethlehem, adding that the visit “carried a message of reassurance, in which there was agreement and a promise to take measures”.

Secretary-General of the Islamic Action Front (IAF) Murad Al-Adaileh said that the visit did not come as a surprise, as the relationship between the two countries is “important and strong”.

Adaileh said that it is essential for the two countries to coordinate, and warned against attempts to “limit or influence the resistance of the Palestinian people”.
