On Thursday, Safadi participated in the ministerial meeting hosted by Egypt, attended by the Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, the Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia, Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, the Foreign Minister of Egypt, Sameh Shoukry, the Minister of State for International Cooperation in the UAE, Reem Al Hashimy, and the Secretary-General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Hussein Al-Sheikh, along with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
