The message reiterated that Jordan will continue to devote all capabilities to support the Palestinian people, and to meet all their legitimate rights, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

The Palestinian president sent his greetings to His Majesty King Abdullah, and reaffirmed his appreciation for the continuous efforts led by the King to support the Palestinian people, their rights and their just cause.

In joint press statements with his Palestinian counterpart, Riyad Al-Maliki, after the meeting, Safadi said that his visit to Ramallah was upon directives by King Abdullah to convey a message to President Mahmoud Abbas, "that is mainly related to our continuous efforts to coordinate our movements in order to support the brotherly Palestinian people, and to ensure finding a real political horizon that takes us towards achieving a just and comprehensive peace on the basis of the two-state solution, which embodies the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with occupied Jerusalem as its capital on the pre-June 4, 1967 borders, as the only way to achieve peace."

Safadi stressed that "the starting point is that the status quo cannot continue, there is an impossibility for things to remain in the stalemate they are, because challenges are exacerbating day by day, and a real international movement is required to take us towards effective engagement in the search for a solution to the Palestinian issue, the issue that was and will remain our first central issue."

He said that the meeting with President Abbas focused on three main topics, the first of which "is to continue coordinating efforts to secure the necessary economic support for the Palestinian Authority, as there are great economic pressures that must be removed, and to open economic horizons to the brotherly Palestinian people."
