Ammon News - Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ayman Safadi on Sunday discussed with his Norwegian counterpart, Anneken Hoetfeld, Jordanian-Norwegian relations and a number of Middle East issues, namely the Palestinian issue.

During the meeting in New York, which took place prior to Hoetfeld's chairing a UN Security Council's session on the situation in the Middle East and developments in the Palestinian cause, Safadi briefed the Norwegian ministers on efforts spearheaded by His Majesty King Abdullah II to "find a real horizon" for achieving a just and comprehensive peace based on the two-state solution.

Safadi warned of the continued absence of a political horizon for serious and effective negotiations to resolve the conflict on the basis of the two-state solution, in addition to the deteriorating economic conditions in the Palestinian territories.

The minister said that maintaining a comprehensive calm pursued by all requires quick and effective action to revive peacemaking efforts and stop all illegal measures that undermine the two-state solution, especially settlement construction, confiscation of Palestinian lands and eviction of Palestinians from their homes.

Safadi stressed the need to respect the historical and legal status quo in Jerusalem and its Muslim and Christian holy sites.

Safadi also called for urgent support for the Palestinian economy, and sufficient funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). It is worth mentioning that the Norwegian Minister chairs the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee for Coordination of International Aid to the Palestinian People (AHLC).

For her part, Hoetfeld said that Oslo is committed to coordinating with Amman on efforts aimed at resuming peacemaking efforts, praising Jordan's efforts to resolve regional crises and achieve security and stability.
