In the meeting, strong support was expressed for the need for a two-state solution in light of the violations that have been committed in Gaza and East Jerusalem.

The solution, however, needs to agree with the United Nations Security Council’s resolutions and all international laws and norms.

Lastly, emphasis was placed on the fact that the newly formed Palestinian government will be supported via constructive measures and state-building efforts.

The state representatives agreed that such a solution would ensure lasting peace, the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and the region’s security.
