Immediately after his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas went to Aqaba, where he met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi. 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,” according to a statement by the Egyptian Presidency, reported the Egyptian daily Al Ahram. The three also absolutely dismissed any attempts by Israel to reoccupy parts of Gaza, reiterating the imperative that residents be allowed to return to their homes.

The three leaders stressed their view that the sole guarantor of stability in the region and protection against the expansion of conflict lies in a fair and comprehensive resolution of the Palestinian issue, including the establishment and recognition of the Palestinian state with the borders of June 4, 1967, with its capital in East Jerusalem.
