Egypt Summit Rejects Moves That Undercut Palestinian Statehood

Egypt and Jordan on Thursday stressed their rejection of any attempt to undercut efforts to secure a Palestinian state along pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as the capital, the state-run Middle East News Agency reported. 

A statement issued at the end of a tripartite summit grouping Egypt and Jordan’s leaders and the Palestinian president said the three sides voiced their rejection of Israeli measures to “undermine a two-state solution” and which “threaten the chances of achieving peace in the region.”
