King Abdullah stressed the importance of respecting the historical and legal status quo at Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif.

His Majesty stressed the need to maintain calm and cease all acts of violence, in order to pave the way for a political horizon for the peace process, calling for an end to any measures that could undermine peace prospects.

The King reaffirmed Jordan’s steadfast position in support of the two-state solution, which guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital, living side-by-side with Israel in peace and security.

Discussions also covered bilateral ties and the need for the Palestinian people to benefit from economic and regional projects.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Al-Safadi, Director of the Office of His Majesty Jafar Hassan, Director of the General Intelligence Directorate Maj. Gen. Ahmad Husni, and the accompanying Israeli delegation attended the meeting.
