AMMAN — Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs, Ayman Safadi, emphasized Jordan's steadfast commitment to the two-state solution. He noted that if this solution were to be undermined and hope for its realization faded, there would be no alternative but to consider a "one-state scenario." Such a scenario, Safadi warned, would lead to a dire situation of racial discrimination, escalating conflict, and further deterioration.اضافة اعلان

During a press conference held on Thursday alongside the Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), Philippe Lazzarini, Safadi elaborated on the consequences of failing to improve the situation in the Palestinian territories, Jo24 reported. He emphasized that safeguarding the two-state solution, making progress toward peace, instilling hope among the Palestinian people, and restoring confidence in the political process were imperative. Failing to do so, he cautioned, would lead to a worsening situation that would impact not only Palestinians but the entire region.

Safadi continued during the press conference with Lazzarini to highlight the ongoing unilateral actions that undermine the two-state solution and hinder prospects for peace. These actions include the expansion of settlements, persistent land confiscations, increasing violations at Al-Aqsa Mosque, ongoing Palestinian displacement, and Israel's refusal to commit to a clear vision for the region's future and a peaceful resolution.

He underscored the significant challenges that persist in advancing towards a resolution of the Palestinian issue, which remains the core issue in the region. Safadi emphasized the need to halt the current deterioration and work towards a genuine political horizon for a just and lasting peace. He stressed that this pursuit was not only a strategic imperative for Jordan but also a regional necessity and a global imperative.
