WASHINGTON, Dec 27 (Bernama-Anadolu) — Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi met Tuesday with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry to exchange opinions on efforts to reach a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip

Meeting in Egypt’s capital Cairo, they exchanged views on the ongoing coordination and consultation process between the two countries to ensure a cease-fire, the Jordanian Foreign Ministry said on X, as reported by Anadolu Agency. 

They also addressed ways to deliver “adequate, urgent and sustainable” aid to Palestinians in Gaza.

The onslaught has left Gaza in ruins, with 60 per cent of the enclave’s infrastructure damaged or destroyed and nearly two million people displaced amid acute shortages of food, clean water and medicines.
