AMMAN, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi and his Palestinian counterpart Riyad Al-Malki on Monday held talks discussing developments concerning the Palestinian cause.

During the meeting in the Jordanian capital Amman, the ministers stressed the importance of stopping the Israeli violations, which hindered the process of establishing peace, condemning the construction of new settlements in Givat Hamatos and other areas, a statement by the Jordanian Foreign Ministry said.

The ministers called for serious and effective negotiations to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the two-state solution, leading to establishing the independent, sovereign and viable Palestinian state.
