Abbas “affirmed the continuation of fraternal coordination between Palestine and Jordan to serve the interests of our nation and its common issues, foremost of which is the Palestinian cause,” according to WAFA. Abdullah “reiterated Jordan’s supportive and supportive position for our people in obtaining their just and legitimate rights, and in establishing their independent, sovereign and viable state, on the June 4, 1967 lines, with east Jerusalem as its capital,” according to the report.
