AMMAN, May 26 (Xinhua) -- King Abdullah II of Jordan on Sunday stressed the importance of stepping up international efforts to increase humanitarian aid to Gaza and ensure its uninterrupted flow, according to a statement by the Royal Hashemite Court.

He made the remarks at a meeting in Amman with British Speaker of the House of Commons Lindsay Hoyle, during which he renewed his call on the international community to take immediate action to stop the humanitarian crisis unfolding in the Strip, and to maintain support for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East.

The king emphasized the need to reach an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza and protect civilians, warning of the dangerous repercussions of the Israeli ground offensive on Rafah.

He also warned of extremist settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank.

During the meeting, the king stressed the need to create a political horizon to achieve just and comprehensive peace on the basis of the two-state solution, commending Britain's support for reaching a ceasefire in Gaza, and its efforts in delivering humanitarian aid to Gazans.
