Amman: Germany`s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier Monday said a two-state solution is the key to end the crisis in Gaza Strip.

In a joint press conference after a meeting with his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh here, the minister said it is important to put an end to the violence and that there is no alternative to peace talks and a two-state solution to address the issue, Xinhua reported.

Judeh condemned the targeting of civilians in Gaza by the Israeli forces, stressing the need to respect humanitarian laws amid the tough conditions Palestinians in Gaza are going through in light of the Israeli offensive.
Judeh added that the solution is to return to the table of negotiations leading to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital.

Talks also covered the situation in Syria, where the two sides underline the need for a political solution to end the Syrian crisis.
