Doghmi's remarks came in his speech at the inaugural ceremony of Baku Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement Parliamentary Network, which is currently being held in the Azerbaijani capital, Baku, which saw regional and international parliamentary participation, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

According to a House statement on Thursday, he affirmed the right of the Palestinian people to build their independent state on their national soil, with Jerusalem as its capital, while stressing the Hashemite custodianship over Jerusalem's Islamic and Christian holy sites.

Continuing: "We call on international organizations and parliamentary blocs to demand the major countries, especially peace sponsors, to seek to activate UN resolutions to achieve fair solutions to the Palestinian cause by pushing Israel, as an occupying country, to comply with those UN steps."

In this regard, he noted the key to Middle East peace is a just solution to the Palestinian cause.

Jordan's House participation in the Baku conference comes as an active member of the Non-Aligned Movement Parliamentary Network, affirming the Parliament's support for the event's activities and goals, adding that it will work to provide the necessary ground to implement many outcomes.
