Jordan, Palestine and Egypt reiterated their commitment to the two-state solution as the only solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, expressing their willingness to cooperate with the US administration to achieve that goal.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi met in Amman with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shukri and Saeb Erekat, who is the Palestine Liberation organization’s executive committee’s secretary and chief Palestinian negotiator, to discuss future steps regarding the peace process.

During a joint press conference following the meeting Safadi said the three countries' commitment to achieving peace as a strategic option, as all Arab states have reaffirmed in the Arab Peace Initiative during the 28th Arab summit recently held in Jordan.

"We all value the obvious and solid commitments that President Trump has made to ensure progress in the resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict…We are ready to do whatever it takes to help push the process forward," Safadi was quoted as saying.
