The King spoke in a meeting Sunday with political figures, including former Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Judeh, who said that the purpose of the meeting was to “inform us about the outcome of His Majesty’s meetings in France, New York and Japan”.

Judeh said the remarks underline the king’s keenness to let officials in on the course of global developments.

Judeh said that details of the discussion will remain within the context of the meeting’s privacy, but pointed out that His Majesty focused in general on protecting Jordanian interests.

Other issues included Jordan’s endeavor, through cooperation with brotherly and friendly countries, to establish regional projects that would support the Jordanian economy, improve the living conditions of Jordanians, and reduce unemployment rates by activating the economic cooperation in the region.

Judeh said the King, in all his meetings and communication with leaders around the world, reiterates Jordan’s firm position on the Palestinian cause and Jerusalem being the capital of a would-be Palestinian state.

His Majesty also insists that the only way to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is through a “two-state solution, which guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the lines pre-June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital, the efforts made with the active parties to attain a just and lasting peace, and that Jordan will not change its stance under any circumstances.”

Judeh also contended that His Majesty focused on the need to include the Palestinian people in regional economic projects, given that strengthening the economic aspect is one of the most important components of the desired Palestinian state, to enhance their steadfastness and mitigate the economic challenges they face.
