During the meeting held at the ministry’s headquarters, Farrayeh noted, "This meeting comes as Jordanians feel sadness and pain over the ongoing humanitarian tragedy in the Gaza Strip, which has claimed the lives of many martyrs, especially innocent women and children, as well as the increasing number of wounded Palestinians, whom we wish a speedy recovery.”

Farrayeh affirmed that Jordan’s positions under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah affirm the Kingdom’s permanent commitment to halt aggression against the Palestinian occupied territories, and reject the concept of displacement, adding that His Majesty reiterated importance to take serious steps that lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state on June 4, 1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Since the beginning of the Israeli war on the strip, Farrayeh noted that Jordan sought to bolster Jordanian field hospital operating in the Strip and provide it with staff and medical supplies, adding that Jordan inaugurated another field hospital to treat the injured people, launched another hospital in the Occupied West Bank, and sent relief aid of various kinds to the strip, as Jordanian aid constituted about 25 percent of the total aid provided to Gaza.

For his part, the Palestinian Minister expressed appreciation for Jordan's significant support and assistance to the Palestinian people across various domains. He also acknowledged Jordan's ongoing commitment and efforts to halt the brutal Israeli aggression against the people in the strip.

The minister also noted that Jordan's positions reflect the strong bilateral relations and unity of the two sides' political positions across all levels, highlighting the Kingdom's elevated standing in both international and regional forums.

Discussions also covered a number of bilateral issues and ways to benefit from Jordan's expertise in developing the National Cyber Security Center (NCSCJO) and the Unified Emergency Response Center 911.
