JORDANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER TO TILLERSON: ‘TWO-STATE SOLUTION IS THE ONLY WAY TO PEACE’

BEIRUT, Jordan – Jordanian Foreign Minister, Ayman Safadi, spoke with his American counterpart, Rex Tillerson, on Tuesday, and told him that, Washington’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has “halted political solutions in the region.”

Safadi tweeted: “I spoke with Secretary Tillerson, on the fallout of recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. I informed him about the Arab League’s stand against it, as a violation of International law. I also stressed that, the two-state solution is the only path to regional peace. Only radicals benefit from growing tension and the absence of horizons.”

In a very controversial step, Trump, on Wednesday week, recognised Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, and announced that he will be moving the American Embassy, from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying, this will enhance the peace process between Israel and Palestinians.

Since then, many demonstrations condemning this move were held across many Islamic countries and the world.
