Jordan, PA, Egypt reiterate commitment to two states

Jordan, the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Egypt on Sunday reiterated their commitment to the “two-state solution” as the only solution to the Israel-PA conflict, the Jordanian news agency Petra reports.

Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi met in Amman with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry and Saeb Erekat, the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) executive committee’s secretary general.

The three discussed future steps regarding the peace process, which is a “priority issue” for the region, Safadi was quoted as having told reporters.

During a joint press conference following the meeting, in which the officials reiterated the principles they agreed on in their meeting, Safadi highlighted the commitment to achieving peace as a strategic option, as all Arab states have reaffirmed in the Arab Peace Initiative during the 28th Arab summit recently held in Jordan.

Discussions also included efforts to end the political stalemate by resuming “serious and effective” negotiations to solve the conflict based on the two-state solution.
