Jordan’s King Urges ‘Immediate’ Pan-Arab Peace Move
11 Apr 09 | Ha’aretz
Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Saturday urged an “immediate” pan-Arab move that has the aim of re-launching “serious” Arab-Israeli peace negotiations on the basis of the two-state formula.
The monarch issued the call during a meeting with six Arab foreign ministers and the Arab League Secretary General Amr Mussa, who met in Amman earlier in the day to appraise the Middle East peace process following the coming to power in Israel of a right-wing government.
“King Abdullah stressed the need for an immediate move to re-launch serious negotiations for resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state formula and in accordance with the agreed references, particularly the Arab peace initiative,” a royal court statement said.
“The monarch underscored the importance of the time element in the negotiation process which should unequivocally seek the implementation of the two-state solution, the establishment of comprehensive peace, regaining all Arab rights and setting up an independent Palestinian state over Palestinian soil,” it added. >>>
