He reiterated Jordan's call to provide protection for the Palestinian people and stop the Israeli attacks and violations in Jerusalem and aggression on Gaza, a ministry statement said.

Safadi held talks by phone with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, during which the two ministers affirmed their condemnation of the Israeli attacks and discussed efforts made to forge an international position in support of the Palestinian people.

Safadi also discussed the drive in a call with the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in the European Union Josep Borrell and the Cypriot Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides.

In Washington, Safadi met with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Palestine and Israel Affairs Hadi Amr to discuss the escalation in Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories.

The top diplomat reiterated that the dangerous conditions in occupied Jerusalem and the rest of the Palestinian territories clearly underline the impossibility of continuing the status quo, and that the potential for the situation to explode at any time unless there is a real effort and a clear horizon to end the occupation, meet the rights of the Palestinians and achieve the two-state solution.
