AMMONNEWS - Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Ayman Safadi, discussed with his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, the regional developments and mechanisms to address them to serve Arab issues and achieve regional security and stability.

In a phone call he made with Shoukry on Sunday, the discussions aimed to to maintain joint consultation and coordination on ways to increase cooperation on diverse positions.

Discussing developments related to the Palestinian issue, the two ministers affirmed their "firm" position in rejecting Israel’s annexation of Palestinian lands in violation of international law, a step that would undermine the chances of achieving a just peace.

In this context, the duo affirmed their "absolute" support to the Palestinian people in their endeavor to fully fulfill their legitimate rights, at the fore is their freedom and the establishment of state on their national soil based on the two-state solution in accordance with the resolutions of international legitimacy and the Arab Peace Initiative, which is the only way to achieve a just and comprehensive peace.
The ministers reviewed developments in efforts to reach an agreement on the Renaissance Dam.

In a bid to boost solution prospects, Safadi stressed the importance of shunning any "unilateral" steps to fill the dam and the need to reach an agreement that preserves Egypt's rights in the Nile waters and the rights of all parties in accordance with international law.

Moreover, the two ministers discussed developments related to the Libyan crisis and the efforts made to find a political solution to the standoff.

On the settlement horizons, the two ministers stressed the necessity of orchestrating all efforts to solve the Libyan crisis politically with the agreement of the Libyan parties to the crisis as soon as possible.
They said this solution should guarantee Libya's security, stability, sovereignty, territorial integrity and the interests of its people in accordance with the approved references, namely the Skhirat Agreement, the Berlin Conference and the Cairo Agreement consistent with the outputs of the Berlin Conference.

Safadi stressed the necessity of making "every possible" effort to stop infighting and bar any actions that could deepen the crisis by making Libya to the arena of regional and international conflicts at the expense of Libya's interests and security, as well as the security of its neighboring countries and the region.

Safadi said the Kingdom fully supports Egypt in facing any threat to its security and stability, as "Egypt's security is Jordan's security and a pillar of security and stability for the entire region."
The duo stressed sustained consultation and coordination, which reflect the "solid, and strategic fraternal" relations led by His Majesty King Abdullah II and President Abdel Fattah Sisi towards broader horizons of cooperation and integration.
