Talks focused on the Palestinian cause and international efforts aimed at finding a political horizon and launching serious negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis to achieve a comprehensive and just peace on the basis of the two-state solution, and bring to an end illegal Israeli practices that undermine chances of achieving peace in the region, a ministry's statement said.

At a joint press conference, Safadi said Garneau's visit to the Kingdom was an indication of the "deep-rooted" Jordanian-Canadian relations and the two countries' keenness to continue consultations aimed at strengthening bilateral cooperation and improving relations based on shared values.
He noted that his talks with his Canadian counterpart were based on previous dialogues held by His Majesty King Abdullah and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, over years of contact and joint action to increase bilateral cooperation in the trade, economic and investment fields, as well as security, defense and counter- terrorism.
