Jordan, Morocco discuss regional issues

AMMAN, Ayman Safadi, Jordanian Minister of Foreign affairs and Expatriates, and his Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita have discussed efforts to end the stalemate in the peace process with the aim of solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state solution that leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

According to the Jordan News Agency, Petra, the two sides discussed the Palestinian issue, affirming that the region will not enjoy security and stability without a just and comprehensive solution to this issue.

Safadi said that both Jordan and Morocco, who are members of the ministerial delegation formed by the Arab League to deal with the repercussions of the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, will do their utmost to protect Jerusalem.

The two ministers also discussed the Syrian crisis and affirmed the need to reach a political solution that preserves the country’s unity and independence.

Safadi and Bourita stressed the importance of the meeting that comes before the upcoming Arab summit in Saudi Arabia, in boosting coordination and consultations on various regional issues.
