Abdullah II and Emmanuel Macron on Friday at the Elysee Palace 

King Abdullah II of Jordan was received in Paris by President Emmanuel Macron on Friday.

He reiterated what he had already stated in Washington, Ottawa, and London in recent days. The Israeli offensive in Gaza has severe humanitarian consequences and poses risks of destabilization throughout the region.

The Hashemite sovereign called for an immediate ceasefire.

However, the king did not mention the threat posed by Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza.

Jordanian diplomacy should play its role by working with other countries to neutralize Hamas. If the militants lay down their arms and the leaders surrender, the war will immediately cease.
