AMMAN —  Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Ayman Safadi, received, on Saturday, a phone call from Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Anneken Hoetfeld, during which they discussed efforts to restore calm in Jerusalem and its sanctities, the necessary steps to ensure a halt to recent escalations, and Israel’s respect for the historical and legal status quo at Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram and the freedom of worshipers to perform their prayers without restrictions.اضافة اعلان

According to Al-Ghad News, Safadi stressed the need for Israel to stop all measures that undermine the historical and legal status quo at Al-Aqsa Mosque, including extremist incursions. He regarded the decision to stop non-Muslims from entering the compound during the last ten days of the holy month of Ramadan, a step in the right direction.

Safadi and Hoetfeld agreed that work must also be done to find a real political horizon to return to serious and effective negotiations to resolve the Palestinian issue on the basis of the two-state solution and in accordance with international law.

Norway currently occupies a non-permanent seat in the Security Council. Safadi valued its role in support of the two-state solution and its efforts to reactivate the peace process.
