Ahram Online , Monday 1 Apr 2024

President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and King Abdullah II bin Al Hussein of Jordan reiterated on Monday the necessity of an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, calling on the international community to fulfil its obligations to alleviate the dire humanitarian crisis, including severe famine, caused by the Israeli war.



During a meeting in the Jordanian capital, Amman, both leaders discussed the latest regional developments, especially the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip, and efforts to achieve a ceasefire and provide access for humanitarian and relief aid to enter the besieged Strip.

According to the Egyptian presidency, the meeting underscored the importance of continued coordination and consultation on regional and international developments, with a particular focus on the situation in Gaza.

Furthermore, they both warned against the potentially dire consequences of any Israeli military operation in the Palestinian city of Rafah.

They urged the international community to assume its role to ensure the delivery of sufficient humanitarian aid to alleviate the Palestinians' suffering throughout the strip.

Additionally, El-Sisi and the king of Jordan stressed their full rejection of the displacement of Palestinians outside their lands, calling for upholding the two-state solution as the cornerstone for achieving a just and comprehensive resolution to the Palestinian cause.

This solution guarantees the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state based on June 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

According to the presidency, both leaders also praised the enduring historical ties between their countries across various levels, emphasizing their shared commitment to nurturing these fraternal relations and bolstering cooperation in all fields. 

El-Sisi was accompanied during his visit by First Lady Entissar El-Sisi.
