AMMAN, Jordan (AA) - Jordan's King Abdullah II and Germany's Chancellor Olaf Scholz discussed the Palestinian issue in a phone conversation on Tuesday, according to Jordan's Royal Court.
In a statement, the court said Abdullah congratulated Scholz on his inauguration as chancellor.
The Jordanian monarch emphasized "his willingness to continue to strengthen the deep historical relations between the two countries," it added.
The phone conversation between the two leaders also focused on regional and international developments, particularly the Palestinian issue, COVID-19, the fight against terrorism, and efforts to find political solutions to crises in the region.
Abdullah made an official visit to Germany on Oct. 27 for talks with then-Chancellor Angela Merkel.
In the press conference following their meeting, Merkel had said she was in favor of a two-state solution to the Palestinian issue.
She underlined: "We do not want to give up the idea of a two-state solution, but rather keep it. We believe Israel's security is best guaranteed when there is also a state for the Palestinians in which they can live."
