Jordan's foreign minister warned Sunday that Palestinians face a humanitarian tragedy unless peacemaking with Israel resumes quickly.
"It is absolutely necessary to consolidate international efforts to provide assistance to the needy Palestinian people," Abdul-Ilah al-Khatib told visiting UN Mideast envoy Alvaro De Soto in the Jordanian capital.
"The difficult economic conditions (in the Palestinian territories)are further deteriorating because of the continued Israeli aggression, the embargo, and oppressive measures threatening to unleash a human tragedy," al-Khatib said.
Jordan's official Petra news agency said the two men discussed the "situation in the Palestinian territories and ways to revive efforts for achieving peace."
