RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee Member, Hanan Ashrawi, met separately with the Jordanian Head of Mission, Muhammad Abu Wandi, and the Egyptian Consul General, Mustafa al-Shahat, at the PLO Headquarters in the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, on Monday.

Ashrawi held separate meetings with Abu Wandi and al-Shahat, during which they discussed the latest political developments and methods to promote mutual relations.

Ashrawi welcomed Abu Wandi, extending her gratitude to the Jordanian government for its constant support for Palestinian self-determination and rights.

Both parties stressed a mutual understanding of the requirements for peace, continued cooperation and coordination and distinctive relations between Palestine and Jordan.

In addition, they also rejected Israeli attempts to implement unilateral policies at the expense of both Palestine and Jordan.

Abu Wandi affirmed the Jordanian government's firm commitment to its mandate on Jerusalem's holy sites, the achievement of the two-state solution and the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

In a separate meeting, Ashrawi received Egyptian Consul General Moustafa al-Shahat, and also thanked the Egyptian government for its unwavering support of a just peace and the constructive role it plays in facilitating Palestinian reconciliation.

She reviewed the latest updates with both parties, concerning political domestic realities and the resolutions of the PLO Central Council (PCC) meeting, including future moves and means of implementation and the grave situation in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Ashrawi stressed, "Gaza will always remain an inseparable part of Palestine."

"Ceasefires cannot precede reconciliation. For any viable solution to succeed, it cannot be purely economic or humanitarian; it is essentially a political solution that should be based on legality, morality and rights," she said while analyzing the status of reconciliation and national unity in Palestine.

Ashrawi also discussed the United States administration's disastrous and unilateral moves which have emboldened Israel to persistently violate international law and destroy the chances for a just peace and stability.

She concluded, "The United States' blanket support of Israel and its complicit role in the belligerent military occupation have generated conditions for great volatility and instability throughout the region and beyond."
