Jordan King urges more peace efforts from Obama

JORDAN: US President Barack Obama telephoned Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Monday to discuss efforts to “overcome obstacles” facing the launch of Palestinian-Israeli peace talks, the palace said.

“The two leaders discussed Middle East developments, mainly efforts aimed at overcoming obstacles facing the launch of serious and effective Palestinian-Israeli negotiations in line with a two-state solution,” a palace statement said.

It quoted the king as telling Obama that the United States “plays a key role in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which is a priority to achieve a comprehensive peace in the Middle East.” “Efforts must be intensified to launch negotiations that would lead to a two-state solution, which enjoys an international consensus,” the king said.

In Washington, the White House said Obama “expressed his appreciation for Jordan’s staunch support for a two-state solution and comprehensive peace in the region, and told the King he considers Jordan to be an integral partner of the United States.”
