Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Ayman Safadi, and his Czech counterpart, Tomas Petricek, held talks on Thursday, which focused on developing bilateral relations and stressed solidarity in facing the Covid-19 pandemic.
Speaking over the phone, the two ministers reviewed efforts made to contribute to solving regional crises, especially in relation to the Palestinian cause and the refugee crisis.
The duo stressed the need to activate steps to enhance cooperation in economic and other fields, despite the pandemic-induced restrictions.
In another phone call made Wednesday with Polish Foreign Minister, Jacek Czaputowicz, bilateral relations and developments related to the Palestinian cause topped the discussions.
Safadi and Czaputowicz lauded bilateral relations as "deep-rooted" and the " broad" prospects to develop them to serve common interests.
Safadi reviewed the efforts made to overcome regional crises and stressed the continued cooperation in combating terrorism within the framework of the international coalition.
In the two phone conversations, Safadi stressed the need to continue efforts to prevent Israel from implementing its decision to annex Palestinian lands, as it constitutes "a violation of international law and an unprecedented danger to all efforts to achieve a just peace."
Safadi also stressed the need to revive efforts aimed to re-launch "serious" negotiations to achieve peace on the basis of the two-state solution and in accordance with international law.
Safadi lauded positions of the Czech Republic, Poland and the EU in support to the two-state solution and their adherence to international law.
Safadi, Petricek and Czaputowicz affirmed solidarity with Lebanon in efforts aimed to address repercussions of the tragic explosion in Beirut and the importance of providing the necessary support amid these "difficult" circumstances
