By Petra - Jan 08,2014 - Last updated at Jan 08,2014

AMMAN — The International Quartet for Middle East Peace is committed to maintaining coordination and contact with Jordan, its representative, Tony Blair, said Wednesday.

At a meeting with Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, Blair said the Quartet appreciates the Kingdom’s efforts in achieving peace and stability in the region.

Judeh reiterated that Jordan views the establishment of a Palestinian state on the pre-1967 border with East Jerusalem as its capital as one of its higher interests as it is the case for Palestine.

The Kingdom is concerned with all final status issues in the peace process because they are all related to vital Jordanian interests, the minister stressed.

Judeh and Blair reviewed the results of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to the region in an effort to push Palestinian-Israeli peace talks forward.

They discussed the outcome of his meetings with the Palestinian and Israeli sides and his talks with His Majesty King Abdullah.

Judeh reaffirmed Jordan’s support for all efforts to advance the peace talks.

The two officials agreed on the importance of working to ensure the success of these negotiations, highlighting the role of the Quartet in this regard.
