Jordan calls for “two-state solution”

Amman’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi declared that the only way to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict remains a fundamental realization of the Palestinians legitimate rights on the basis of a “two-state solution.”

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi made this statement in a joint press conference with his visiting Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. The Jordanian top diplomat also stressed his country’s position, in which the Hashemite Kingdom does not accept the U.S. decision regarding the Golan Heights and Jerusalem, which he recognized as a declared red line for King Abdullah the second. According to Ayman Safadi: “The sovereignty over the Golan Heights is very clear. We don’t accept the U.S. decision in this regard. As to Jerusalem, our King Abdullah II has said many times that Jerusalem is a red line. Just as the king said, we won’t compromise and bargain with anyone at all.”

The meeting between the Russian and Jordanian Foreign Ministers focused on the Syrian conflict, and the need for conflict resolutions in the various arena’s across the Middle East.
