In order to hold discussions with Palestinian leaders, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman al-Safadi arrived in Ramallah, West Bank, on Tuesday.
Al-Safadi arrived in Amman onboard a Jordanian chopper, according to a correspondent.
To address the current Israeli escalation in occupied East Jerusalem, as well as coordination between Palestine and Jordan on all problems, he will meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and other officials, according to official Palestinian channels.
According to the broadcaster, before leaving Ramallah, the top Jordanian diplomat will conduct a press conference with Hussein al-Sheikh, Secretary of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Executive Committee.
Tensions have been running high across the Palestinian territories following a recent flag march by Israeli settlers through East Jerusalem and frequent settler intrusions into the sensitive Al-Aqsa Mosque complex.
Israel captured East Jerusalem, including Al-Aqsa, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. In a move that was never acknowledged by the international world, it annexed the entire city in 1980.
