King urges further cooperation among Arab lawmakers
Amman, 29 April 2014
His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday stressed the importance of Arab inter-parliamentary action in serving Arab causes.
Receiving Arab Parliament Speaker Ahmad Al Jarwan, King Abdullah called for maintaining constant cooperation and coordination among all Arab lawmaking bodies, voicing appreciation at the same time for the pan-Arab legislature’s support for Jerusalem and its holy sites.
Jarwan, and an accompanying delegation, participated in the international conference on Jerusalem, inaugurated under the patronage of the King on Monday.
His Majesty also renewed Jordan’s support of the peace efforts between the Palestinians and the Israelis that should ultimately lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the pre-1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The King also reiterated the Kingdom’s “unaltered stance” on Syria which advocates a comprehensive political solution to the ongoing crisis that can end the suffering of the Syrian people and safeguard the territorial unity of their country.
For their part, Jarwan and his accompanying delegates expressed their appreciation for Jordan’s role in safeguarding and defending the holy city of Jerusalem, citing the Kingdom’s historic custodianship of Al Aqsa Mosque.
