AMMAN, Jordan, Mar 14 (NNN-PETRA) - Jordan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), urged intensified efforts, to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, on the basis of the two-state solution.

The call was made by Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ayman Safadi, and his UAE counterpart, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in their meeting in the capital, Amman.

Peace talks should lead to the creation of an independent Palestinian state, at the borders of 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital, they noted.

The two ministers warned against continued unilateral Israeli measures, that undermine the two-state solution and seek to impose new realities, especially in the disputed holy city of Jerusalem.

On Syria, the two sides agreed that, there was no military solution to the crisis, and called for more efforts to reach a political solution, that preserves the unity and territorial integrity of the country.

They underlined the need for immediate implementation of the UN's decision, on the cease-fire in Syria's Eastern Ghouta.

For his part, Al Nahyan highlighted Jordan's key role in regional stability, saying, his country is interested in increasing cooperation with Jordan, in various areas.-- NNN-PETRA
