In recent developments, King Abdullah II of Jordan hosted the Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hakan Fidan, for discussions in Amman on Thursday.

Their primary focus was the ongoing conflict in Gaza, and both nations expressed their commitment to enhancing coordination to help bring an end to the crisis.

Notably, both Turkey and Jordan maintain diplomatic relations with Israel, making their roles in de-escalating the situation particularly significant.

The Israeli government has emphasized that its military operation targets terrorist groups rather than the Palestinian population and has vowed to continue until the security threat is eliminated.

One crucial aspect to consider is the demographic composition of Jordan, where approximately 60% of the population is of Palestinian origin. This demographic connection adds depth to Jordan's interest in finding a resolution to the ongoing conflict.

The meeting between King Abdullah II and Minister Hakan Fidan highlights the importance of regional cooperation in addressing complex geopolitical challenges. As the situation in Gaza remains tense, the collaboration between Jordan and Turkey could potentially play a vital role in promoting peace and stability in the region.

The coming days and weeks will likely see further diplomatic efforts from various parties involved, including these two nations, as they seek to contribute to a peaceful resolution to the conflict and alleviate the suffering of those affected.
