Egypt-Jordan solution can’t be given up: Sisi

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Jordan’s King Abdullah II have reaffirmed the two state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as an Arab national constant.

King Abdullah II arrived in Cairo on Tuesday on an impromptu visit for talks with Sisi.

A statement by the Egyptian presidency said that the two leaders discussed mutual coordination to reach a two-state solution and establish a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as a capital, which is a national constant that cannot be given up.

“The two sides also discussed future movements to break the gridlock within the Middle East peace process, especially with U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration taking power,” the statement added.

At a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington, DC, last week, Trump said that he would back a single-state solution if the two sides agreed to it.
