AMMAN-CAIRO – A meeting bringing together the foreign ministers of Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar alongside the Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken kicked off in the Jordanian capital on Saturday.
Posting to his X account, Spokesman for the Egyptian Foreign Ministry Ahmed Abu Zeid cited “intensified Arab efforts for stopping the war machine in Gaza and provide protection for the people of Palestine.”
Earlier today, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry landed in the Jordanian capital, Amman, to participate in a coordination meeting with his counterparts from Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, alongside the Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Abu Zeid said in a statement on Friday.
The meeting aims at coordinating efforts to stop the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip, put an end to the Israeli attacks on Palestinian civilians, and work to secure the immediate and sustainable flow of humanitarian aid to the enclave, he added.
During the meeting with Blinken, the ministers are scheduled to reaffirm the Arab integrated and unified stance, including the priority of reaching a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, dealing with the deteriorating humanitarian situation, and then beginning to address the root causes of the crisis, which are the continuation of the Israeli occupation and the absence of a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian cause based on the terms of reference of international legitimacy and the vision of the two-state solution, the spokesman said.
