Jordanian King stresses need for stronger Arab solidarity

By NNN-Petra,

Amman : Jordan’s King Abdullah II has underlined the need to achieve the highest degree of Arab solidarity.

During a meeting with Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa Sunday, King Abdullah also called for an end to inter-Arab differences that constitute an obstacle to reaching an effective Arab stand in the face of political, security, and economic challenges.

Resolving these differences will better serve Arab interests, King Abdullah added, noting the importance of building on the favourable atmosphere which prevailed at the Kuwait Arab Economic Summit following the statement by Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz, which set the scene for Arab reconciliation.

It is just as crucial to exert every possible effort to achieve Palestinian reconciliation and unite Palestinian ranks, especially at this phase that should see intensive Arab and international efforts to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state solution, the King said.

During the meeting, King Abdullah and Moussa reviewed developments in the region particularly diplomatic efforts to consolidate the ceasefire in Gaza and begin reconstruction plans in the coastal enclave.

Moussa briefed King Abdullah on his current tour of several Arab states.
