Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Al-Safadi affirmed both countries’ steady position on support for the restoration of the legitimate rights of the Palestinians.
Both ministers stressed in a meeting in Amman on Wednesday the necessity of reaching a fair and comprehensive settlement for the Palestinian issue according to international law.
Shoukry is in Jordan to participate in a quadripartite meeting on Thursday on Palestine with regional and international counterparts.
The meeting between the Egyptian, Jordanian, German and French foreign ministers will see an exchange of viewpoints on the current status of the peace process in the Middle East.
It will see discussions on means of accelerating the resumption of the peace process and support to reaching a comprehensive and fair political settlement in Palestine on the basis of a two-state solution.
In the past months, Egypt and Jordan have stressed their rejection of any unilateral Israeli action concerning the annexation of the occupied West Bank, which has been delayed temporarily as part of the recent normalization agreement between Israel and the UAE.
