A ministry statement said that in a phone call with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri, Safadi discussed efforts aiming at ending the crisis in the Palestinian territories and providing protection for the Palestinians.
The two ministers, during the phone call, stressed the need for an effective international action to protect the Palestinians, halt the escalation, and stop the Israeli aggression on Gaza, which has claimed dozens of lives.
The top diplomats held Israel accountable for the escalation that could push the entire region towards more tension and violence, the statement said.
Earlier in the day, Safadi received a call from Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan, in which they discussed potential détente in the Mideast conflict through peaceful means.
