Jordanian King Abdullah II tells Defense Minister Benny Gantz that “provocative actions that lead to escalation” must be prevented, the Jordanian Royal Court says.

According to the court, Abdullah reiterated Jordan’s support for a two-state solution. The monarch also pushed for Israel to remove obstacles to Palestinian “freedom of worship” during Ramadan.

Before meeting the king, Gantz held a bilateral meeting with Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman al-Safadi. The latter was a notable holdout at yesterday’s Negev Summit, which saw four Arab foreign ministers meet in Sde Boker alongside Israeli FM Yair Lapid.
