According to the Jordanian news agency, Petra, King Abdullah during his meeting with Blinken warned against the continuation of provocative Israeli violations in Jerusalem and against Al Aqsa Mosque, as well as repeated illegal attempts to evict Palestinian families from their homes in East Jerusalem neighborhoods, especially in Sheikh Jarrah, a matter that has led to the recent escalations.
King Abdullah stressed the need to preserve the historical and legal status quo in Jerusalem, noting that Jordan will continue its efforts in safeguarding Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.

King Abdullah noted that the lack of a political solution that fulfills the just and legitimate rights of the Palestinians, and guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital, will push the region into further tensions, aggravation, and instability.
