According to the Jordan News Agency Petra, Safadi noted Jordan-Egypt consultation, coordination and communication is an "ongoing" policy between the two brotherly countries and said coordination and communication was intense and began from the first moments of the Gaza events.

Egypt and Jordan, since the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, have been making, and are still making, "unrelenting" efforts to stop attacks against civilians in Gaza, he pointed out.

Safadi also affirmed Cairo and Amman are playing a "pivotal" role to halt war and return to the negotiating table to establish an independent and sovereign Palestinian state along the 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Safadi noted :"We have spared no effort since the first day of the war to stop it and reduce burden on our brethren in Gaza. We have communicated with all parties, international partners, brothers and friends to halt war and prevent its expansion in the region, but Israel is stubborn and wants to destroy Gaza and has not listened to the voice of reason and wisdom."
