Yousef hailed the role of Jordan in supporting the Palestinian issue and said "the Palestinians welcome any efforts made by the king as long as they take into consideration the Palestinian interests and rights and aim to ease Palestinian suffering."

In a statement made to Ma'an's correspondent in Gaza, Ahmad Yousef denied that Haniyeh will make any visits to any of the European nations, especially in the wake of the ongoing economic embargo imposed on the Palestinians, he said......"
