AMMONNEWS - Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ayman Safadi reaffirmed Jordan's position towards the Palestinian cause, which he said, "will remain the first and central cause" and towards achieving comprehensive peace.

During his statement on Sunday at the extraordinary session of the Council of the Arab League at the ministerial level that Jordan will save no effort in supporting the Palestinians and their legitimate rights.

He warned of the gravity of the situations in occupied Palestinian territories, calling for intensifying the joint Arab work and communicating with the international community to find a political detente to end the occupation and set up a Palestinian state.

Safadi emphasized that Jordan will continue saving no effort in protecting occupied Jerusalem and its Muslim and Christian holy sites through His Majesty King Abdullah II's direct follow up.

"Sovereignty over Jerusalem is Palestinian and custodianship over its sanctities is Hashemite directed by His Majesty King Abdullah II who has been harnessing all of Jordan's capabilities to protect them, but the responsibility of defending Jerusalem, its identity and legal status quo is Jordanian, Palestinian, Arab, Islamic and international," he said, adding that Jerusalem is the basis for peace and tampering with it or its sanctities is a threat to international peace and security.

The session, which was convened upon the request of the state of Palestine, discussed challenges facing the Palestinian cause, as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas gave a comprehensive briefing about the developments in the Palestinian arena.

Safadi also highlighted the importance of the Arab countries to adopt a new strategy to face the challenges facing the Palestinian cause based on Arab principles that have been reaffirmed in all Arab summits and in cooperation with the international community that supports the two-state solution as the only viable way to bring about peace.

He also warned of the dangers in the occupied Palestinian territories in light of the Israeli measures and decisions that undermine the two-state solution, stressing the importance of adopting effective actions to help in addressing the financial issues suffered by the Palestinian National Authority.
