Amman (UNA-OIC) – Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Ayman Safadi, and Secretary for Relations with States of the Vatican City Bishop Paul Gallagher discuss over the phone developing ties between Jordan and the Vatican City and boosting cooperation to achieve regional peace and stability.
The talks highlighted the effort exerted to stop Israel from following through on its plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank and finding a true prospect for achieving peace on the basis of the two-state solution according to the pertinent international resolutions.
From his side, Safadi pointed out to the importance of the Vatican City’s position against the annexation and in support of a two-state solution, emphasizing the necessity of drumming up and intensifying all effort aimed at preventing the illegal annexation and achieving peace on the basis of the two-state solution that would guarantee the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the June 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
“Jordan, under the leadership of King Abdullah, the Custodian of the Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, will continue safeguarding the holy sites in the city and preserving its historic status, Safadi noted.
In turn, Gallagher praised the King for his leading role in protecting holy sites in the occupied city of Jerusalem and for his continued effort in achieving regional peace and stability.
