AMMAN — Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Thursday met with his Norwegian counterpart Borge Brende and discussed bilateral ties and the latest regional developments, especially the escalation of the Israeli war on Gaza, and the situations in Syria and Iraq, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

During the meeting, Judeh renewed Jordan’s denunciation of the Israeli aggression on the coastal enclave which has left more than 200 people dead and more than 1,500 injured so far, calling for an immediate ceasefire to end the bloodshed and people’s large-scale suffering.

Judeh added that peace negotiations are the best approach to ending the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The two sides also discussed the Syrian crisis and its consequences on the Kingdom, calling for an inclusive political solution to the ongoing crisis there.

On Iraq, Judeh reiterated Jordan’s support for all efforts seeking to safeguard the eastern neighbour’s territorial unity.
