Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Jordan’s King Abdullah II discussed on Monday at the Sakhir Air Base in Manama the latest regional and international developments.

They stressed the need to continue to coordinate and consult on issues of mutual concern, mainly the Palestinian cause.

The two leaders noted the centrality of the Palestinian cause, calling for stepping up efforts to reach a just and comprehensive peace based on the two-state solution, as a strategic option to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

In addition, the two monarchs stressed the need to work to stop foreign interference in regional affairs and to enhance bilateral cooperation to stabilize the region and protect international navigation in the Arabian Gulf from any threats that affect the movement of global trade.

The talks also covered the latest developments in Syria, with King Abdullah reiterating his country’s support for efforts to preserve the country’s sovereignty, stability, territorial integrity, and the unity of its people.
