The meeting in Rome discussed means to enhance relations between the two countries in various fields and reviewed regional developments and efforts to resolve crises in the Middle East.

Safadi and Fassino highlighted the strategic ties between the Kingdom and Italy and the importance of boosting institutional cooperation that serves the two countries' interests. This cooperation, they said, would have a positive impact on efforts to achieve security, stability, and prosperity.

Safadi reviewed Jordan's efforts to resolve regional crises, achieve security and stability, and reach a just and comprehensive peace.

However, he said the only way to achieve these goals is to legitimize the rights of the Palestinian people, namely their right to freedom and independence as a sovereign state with Jerusalem as its capital based on the borders set on June 4, 1967.

Safadi added that if these rights are legitimized, Palestine can live in peace and security alongside Israel.

Fassino underlined commitment to enhancing cooperation between the parliaments of both countries.

On Monday evening, Safadi delivered a keynote speech at the sixth annual meeting of the European Council on Foreign Relations, the Middle East, and North Africa (MENA) program.
