His Majesty King Abdullah met with the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini on the sidelines of the 30th Arab Summit in Tunis on Sunday.

The meeting covered the partnership between Jordan and the European Union, and recent regional developments.

Discussions covered the importance of strengthening coordination and consultation between Jordan and the EU on various issues of mutual concern.

King Abdullah stressed the need to step up international efforts to re-launch Palestinian-Israeli negotiations, based on the two-state solution, leading to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, pointing out the importance of the European role in this regard.

His Majesty also highlighted the need to reach political solutions to regional crisis.

The status of the Golan Heights as occupied Syrian territory, according to international law and UN resolutions, was also emphasised during the meeting.

Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, Adviser to His Majesty and Director of the Office of His Majesty Manar Dabbas, and Jordan’s Ambassador in Tunis Awwad Sarhan attended the meeting.
