AMMAN: Jordan’s King Abdullah met separately the foreign ministers of Australia and Greece on Tuesday in Amman to stress the importance of ending Israel’s war in Gaza, the Jordan News Agency reported.

King Abdullah reaffirmed to Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong Jordan’s opposition to the displacement of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza and Israel’s plans to separate the territories, adding that both must be part of the Palestinian state.

The king said that military and security solutions would not bring peace and that the only way to do so was to establish a political horizon based on the two-state solution, which fulfilled Palestinians’ legitimate rights and guaranteed the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state based on the 1967 border and with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The king’s meeting with Greek Foreign Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis focused on the deteriorating situation in Gaza and the need to stop Israeli aggression and end the humanitarian crisis.

The talks also addressed the sustainable delivery of sufficient aid to the Gaza Strip.

King Abdullah warned of the catastrophic consequences of the war’s continuation.

Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, and Director of the Office of His Majesty Jafar Hassan attended the meeting.

On the same day, the Humanitarian and Relief Aid Cell of the Jordanian Armed Forces sent a convoy of aid to Gaza.
