Reopening of Allenby Bridge; A big Step Towards Peace in Middle East- MEP

The reopening of the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge linking Israel and Jordan, thanks to a direct mediation of Morocco, under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI, is a big step towards peace in the Middle East, said MEP Ilhan Kyuchyuk. This feat was made possible “thanks to the diplomatic efforts of Morocco and the King’s actions for peace and reconciliation in the region,” tweeted the member of the European Parliament from the Renew Europe group. The mediation, led by the Kingdom and the United States of America, has led to an agreement for the permanent opening 24/7 of this crossing, which is the only opening of the Palestinians to the world. The opening of this border crossing, located about 50 km from the capital Amman, will be effective as soon as the logistical conditions are met, especially in terms of human resources. This mediation is, once more, an eloquent testimony of the interest of His Majesty the King, as chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, in defending the Palestinian cause and the well-being of the Palestinians.
