Jordan and Egypt cannot receive Palestinian refugees, Jordan’s King Abdullah II said on Tuesday, calling the issue a “red line” and stressing that the humanitarian situation must be dealt with within Gaza.
King Abdullah II added in joint statements with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz after their meeting in Berlin that the suggestion of Egypt and Jordan hosting refugees is an approach from “the usual suspects” to create a new complicated issue on the ground.
A US-Egyptian-Jordanian summit is scheduled to be held on Wednesday in Amman, according to Al Qahera News website.
The summit coincides with the expected visit of US President Joe Biden to Israel on Wednesday, said US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
The summit also coincides with the escalation of the Israeli occupation army’s attacks on the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of over 2,750 people.
