CAIRO, May 23 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi and King Abdullah II of Jordan stressed on Wednesday the absence of prospects for a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian cause will lead to further instability in the region.
During a meeting in Cairo, both leaders asserted that the issue of Jerusalem must be settled within final status issues on the basis of the two-state solution.
The King of Jordan arrived in Cairo on Wednesday for a one-day official visit.
Spokesman for Egyptian presidency, Bassam Rady, said in a statement that the two leaders stressed their full support for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, with the right to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The visit comes almost a week after the two leaders discussed, in a phone call, efforts to reach political settlements in the region as well as latest regional developments, mainly in Palestine.
At least 63 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were killed and about 2,800 wounded in confrontations between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters against moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the city that the Palestinians want its eastern part to be the capital of their future state.
On May 14, the United States moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem, six months after U.S. President Donald Trump recognized the city as the capital of Israel.
They also highlighted the importance of continuation of the international community's efforts to resume direct negotiations between the Palestinian and Israeli sides, leading to a two-state solution based on the Arab peace initiative, which will contribute to restoring stability and opening new horizons for the Middle East.
Both leaders stressed the need for a political solution to the crisis in Syria, in order to maintain its territorial integrity, emphasizing their support for the Syrian people in order to achieve their aspirations to live in safety and stability.
The leaders have also underlined keenness for mutual coordination on various issues of common concern to advance the distinguished strategic relations.
