In a phone call with the Palestinian Authority president, Mahmoud Abbas, the king reiterated his country’s support for the Palestinian efforts to achieve their “just and legitimate rights” and to establish their independent state based on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

He also restated his country’s position that these two states, Palestine and Israel, should be living in peace with all countries in the region, stressing that such a goal should be based on the two-state solution.

King Abdullah highlighted that Jordan will continue to work towards the just and comprehensive peace that the people of the region seek, in line with international law and the relevant UN resolutions.

Abbas expressed appreciation for Jordan’s steadfast position led by the King, in supporting the Palestinian cause and defending the rights of the Palestinian people.

    • Yes, we appreciate what is just (Israel’s acceptance of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community) and we oppose what is not just (Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians, especially in the occupied territories).
