The meeting discussed concrete steps toward establishing a Palestinian state in the context of the two-state solution and moving to a political path that supports a sustainable solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The meeting stressed the importance of the international community’s recognition of the Palestinian state, to adopt a holistic approach toward a credible and irreversible path to implement the two-state solution in accordance with international law and agreed parameters, including United Nations Security Council resolutions, the Arab Peace Initiative, and other relevant initiatives. This aims to achieve a just and lasting peace that meets the rights of the Palestinian people and the security of the region, paving the way for normal relations between states in a region where stability, security, peace, and cooperation prevail.
