AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Monday urged the creation of a climate that is conducive to breathing life into the moribund peace process between the Palestinians and the Israelis.

He told British lawmakers that any talks between the two sides should address all the final status issues in line with the two-state solution and international legitimacy resolutions, a Royal Court statement said. 

His Majesty underlined the key role of concerned international parties, foremost of which the UK, to push the Mideast peace process forward and achieve results that would reflect positively on regional peace and stability, noting that continued violence, turbulence and instability in the area is a lifeline for terrorism and extremism.


The King reiterated the need to intensify the ongoing efforts by regional and international players to firmly address the threat of terrorism and its radical gangs, applying a holistic approach that involves full coordination among all partners. 

The two sides also discussed the Syrian crisis and efforts to find an inclusive political solution.

The British legislators thanked Jordan for the “pivotal” role it is playing in dealing with the various regional issues and its peace efforts, the statement said.


The meeting was attended by Royal Court Chief Fayez Tarawneh, King’s Office Director Jaafar Hassan and the president of the House’s Palestine Committee, MP Yahya Saud.
