During the call, Safadi and Motegi stressed the importance of maintaining the ceasefire, halting Israeli violations in the region, and enhancing Jordanian-Japanese relations.

Safadi commended Japan’s commitment to a two-state solution, underscoring the country’s role in supporting international efforts to achieve the permanent and just peace in compliance with international law. He stressed that Israel must respect the status quo in Jerusalem and its holy sites, and halt its continuous violations in the occupied territories and Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif.

He added that the displacement of people from their homes in Jerusalem hinders international peace efforts seeking peace in the region.

For his part, Motegi commended His Majesty King Abdullah’s efforts in leading the peace process and brokering a ceasefire, underscoring the Kingdom’s custodianship over Jerusalem’s Islamic and Christian holy sites.

Both ministers stressed the importance of coordination to develop strategic bilateral ties.

Also on Wednesday, Safadi discussed bilateral ties and regional peace efforts with a delegation from the French parliamentary defense committee.
