CAIRO -10 January 2024:  Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El Sisi participated, Wednesday in an Egyptian-Jordanian-Palestinian Summit in the city of Al-ʿAqabah, Jordan.

Spokesman for the Presidency, Ahmed Fahmy, said the summit convened at a crucial moment for the Arab region.

He added that President El-Sisi was keen on coordinating stances with his brothers King of Jordan, Abdullah II ibn Al Hussein, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to ensure unity of ranks and positions and to preserve the security and stability of the peoples of the region.

During the summit, President El-Sisi highlighted Egypt’s tireless efforts to open dialogue with all parties to reach an immediate and urgent ceasefire in Gaza.

The President underscored Egypt’s commitment to providing, coordinating and delivering humanitarian relief aid to the people of Gaza, which resulted in the entry of thousands of tons of fuel, relief and supplies and the reception of a large number of injured people for treatment in Egyptian hospitals. President El-Sisi noted, however, that what has been provided is insufficient to adequately protect the people of Gaza from the severe humanitarian catastrophe they are currently enduring, adding that this situation requires a robust stance from the international community to push for a ceasefire, which represents a crucial guarantee to protect the people of Gaza and prevent the region from sliding into further tension.

The three leaders agreed on the unequivocal and categorical rejection of any endeavors, attempts or proposals that aim to liquidate the Palestinian issue or forcibly displace the Palestinian people outside their land. They underscored their absolute dismissal of any attempts to reoccupy parts of Gaza, reiterating the imperative need to enable the people of the sector to return to their homes, and stressing the vital importance for the international community to shoulder its responsibility for the implementation of the relevant international resolutions, primarily those of the UN Security Council and the General Assembly.

The three leaders warned against the gravity of hostilities in the West Bank or any desecrations to religious sanctities, which will only aggravate tension in the region, plunging it into an uncontrollable state.

The summit also reaffirmed full and unshakable support for the Palestinian National Authority to enable it to assume its tasks and protect the Palestinian people against the violations they have been enduring across the Palestinian territories.

The three leaders confirmed vehement rejection of any endeavors to separate the tracks between Gaza and the West Bank, affirming that the only guarantor for the stability of the situation in the region and its protection from the expansion of the cycle of conflict and from matters spiraling out of control is reaching a just and comprehensive settlement for the Palestinian issue, envisaging the establishment and acknowledgement of an independent Palestinian State along the June 4, 1967 borders, with Arab East Jerusalem as its capital.
