The meeting, as reported by the Jordanian Royal Court, highlighted King Abdullah's emphasis on the urgent need to halt the hostilities in Gaza and put an end to the Israeli-imposed siege on the Palestinian enclave.
The Jordanian monarch underscored the importance of intensifying efforts to ensure the delivery of essential supplies such as food, medicine, water, and fuel to the Palestinians in Gaza. King Abdullah reiterated his commitment to the two-state solution as the only viable resolution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
