At the meeting, attended by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, His Majesty called for stepping up international efforts to deliver food, water, medicine, and fuel to Gaza without interruption, and support relief organizations working in the strip.

Noting that the only way to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is by working towards a political horizon to achieve just and comprehensive peace on the basis of the two-state solution, the King warned that military or security solutions will not succeed.

His Majesty reaffirmed Jordan’s ongoing support for the Palestinian people in gaining their legitimate rights to establish a sovereign and independent Palestinian state on the 4 June 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, Director of the Office of His Majesty Jafar Hassan, Jordan’s Ambassador to the US Dina Kawar, and US Ambassador to Jordan Yael Lempert, as well as the secretary of state’s accompanying delegation attended the meeting.
