King Abdullah said the meetings covered safeguarding Jordanian interests and addressing regional developments, noting that Jordan will continue advocating for regional causes, promoting national interests, and activating economic cooperation in the region.

His Majesty stressed Jordan’s steadfast position on the need to establish an independent Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967, lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and voiced hope that peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis will resume in the upcoming phase, leading to a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian cause.

The King, referring to his speech at the UN, reiterated Jordan’s commitment to safeguarding Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, under the Hashemite Custodianship.

His Majesty also noted that Jordan’s cooperation with Egypt and Iraq, and its participation in regional projects aims at building economic partnerships that advance the region and contribute to enhancing economic conditions.

The King underscored that Jordan advocates for the inclusion of Palestinians in regional cooperation projects, especially given that a strong economy is an integral component to achieving a Palestinian state, bolsters the steadfastness of the Palestinians, and mitigates their economic challenges.

Turning to the Syrian crisis, His Majesty reaffirmed that Jordan continues to exert efforts toward reaching a political solution that safeguards the territorial integrity of Syria and the unity of its people, while guaranteeing the safe and voluntary return of refugees.

The King also discussed the efforts of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army to protect society from drug smuggling, noting that the Kingdom’s borders are secure due to the efforts of JAF and security agencies’ personnel.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi gave an overview of Jordan’s diplomatic efforts, including building bilateral relations with a number of countries and enhancing the Kingdom’s key regional role. Royal Hashemite Court Chief Yousef Issawi and Director of the Office of His Majesty Jafar Hassan attended the meeting.
