ABDULLAH II IBN AL HUSSEIN, King of Jordan…Global partnership is critical to resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, one of the longest-standing conflicts in modern history, he said.  The war on Gaza in 2020 was a reminder that the current situation is unsustainable.  The suffering points to the critical need to keep supporting the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), as it continues to fulfil its mandate and provide vital humanitarian services to 5.7 million vulnerable Palestinian refugees.  Genuine security for either side can only be achieved through the two-State solution and Jerusalem is at the heart of any peace.  For its part, Jordan will continue working to preserve the historic and legal status quo of Jerusalem and its Islamic and Christian Holy Sites, under Hashemite custodianship.
