AMMAN, May 18 (Xinhua) -- Jordan and Greece on Tuesday agreed that there is no alternative to the two-state solution as the only way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The two sides reached the agreement at a meeting between Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi with his visiting Greek counterpart Nikos Dendias.
Safadi held Israel responsible for the recent escalation in the occupied Palestinian territories, which has pushed the whole region toward more tension and violence, according to a statement issued by the Jordanian Foreign Ministry.
Safadi added that de-escalation requires an end to the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, including Israel's unilateral and provocative steps such as building and expanding settlements and forcibly displacing Palestinians residents from their homes.
These moves have undermined the two-state solution, he said.
Safadi also received a phone call on Tuesday from his Dutch counterpart Stef Blok to review the efforts made to stop the deadly Israeli attacks in Jerusalem, Gaza, and the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories. Enditem
