AMMAN – The Cairo Summit for Peace affirmed to the world that Egypt and Jordan reject the forced displacement of Palestinians, said First Deputy Speaker of the Jordanian Lower House Abdulrahim Maayah.
The Summit was held at the New Administrative Capital on Saturday, upon a call by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
The summit was attended by a host of world leaders, including Jordanian King Abdullah II.
In exclusive statements to MENA correspondent in Amman, Maayah said that President Sisi and the Jordanian king are exerting strenuous efforts to put an end to the Israeli occupation on the Gaza Strip.
The two leaderships maintain coordination at the highest level, he further said.
The message of the Jordanian king was clear, blaming the silence of the international community for the continuation of unabated Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, he added.
The speeches delivered by President Sisi and King Abdullah II during the summit sent a clear message, which affirmed the necessity of continuing the delivery of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, without any conditions, he said.
The entry of an aid convoy into Gaza on Saturday represented a real victory of the Egyptian and Jordanian stances, which support the Palestinian cause, he went on to say.
The Jordanian official voiced deep regret over the silence of the US toward Israeli crimes in the occupied territories, he added.
