King Abdullah II held talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in New York on Tuesday, during which they both agreed that the two-state solution is the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace in the region, the Royal Hashemite Court reported.

The two leaders stressed the need to support Palestinians in realizing their legitimate right to establish an independent State with East Jerusalem as its capital.

King Abdullah and his counterpart also reaffirmed the need for the international community to shoulder its responsibilities in support of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), to enable it to continue providing relief, education and health services to Palestinian refugees.

The depth of brotherly relations between Jordan and Egypt, and the importance of expanding joint cooperation in all fields were also emphasized.

Other items discussed between the two leaders included developments with the Syrian crisis and the efforts that should be made to reach a political solution in the war-torn country, as well as efforts to fight terrorism.
