Jordan's King Abdullah II told French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday that ending the war on the Gaza Strip is an urgent necessity and warned there could otherwise be an "explosion" in the region.
In a royal court statement, the monarch told Macron Israel should be pressured by the international community to stop the war, protect the civilians, and end its siege of the Strip.
"We are against any attempt by Israel to create an exodus of Palestinians or internally displace the inhabitants of Gaza," King Abdullah stressed.
Moreover, they looked into international efforts in pursuit of an end to the cycle of violence, while reaching a political horizon that ends the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, guarantees security, and achieves just and comprehensive peace based on the two-state solution.
King Abdullah also warned of the deteriorating humanitarian crisis in the enclave, highlighting the importance of securing the delivery of humanitarian aid.
On Wednesday, the monarch also welcomed a delegation from the UK House of Commons, headed by Foreign Affairs Committee Chair MP Alicia Kearns, at Al Husseiniya Palace.
At the meeting, King Abdullah renewed his call for the immediate stop of the war on Gaza and the protection of civilians, highlighting the UK’s important role in pushing towards stopping the war and protecting vital and medical facilities in the strip.
He warned of the rapidly deteriorating situation in Gaza, stressing the need for the delivery of humanitarian aid without interruption.
The King also warned against the catastrophic repercussions of the spillover of the war into the region.
