Jordan’s King Abdullah said the necessity for activating joint Arab cooperation and unifying Arab ranks is at a ‘critical’ stage.
He said that the joint action would empower the Arab countries to counter the regional challenges amid the current global political changes.
The kings’ remarks came during his meeting with the delegation of the Council for Arab and International Relations on Sunday held in the Jordanian capital Amman, where they discussed a number of regional issues, and the ways to address these challenges.
He reaffirmed that the issues of Jerusalem and the Palestine cause, Syria, Iraq, Libya and the fight against extremism and terrorism, would top the Arab summit’s agenda which will be held later this month in Jordan.
During the meeting, King Abdullah called for ending the deadlock in the Palestinian-Israeli peace process and re-launching serious and effective negotiations to open political prospects towards a just and comprehensive solution based on the two-state solution, which he believes to be the only solution to end the conflict between both sides.
The meeting also discussed the crisis experienced by some of the Arab countries and the ways to address them.
Jordan is set to host the Arab summit on 29 March.
