Jordan's king receives Palestinian counterpart


(MENAFN) Jordan's King Abdullah II will be receiving his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas on Monday to discuss U.S. President Donald Trump's Middle East peace plan, Haaretz reported.

Aside from Abbas, attending the meeting on the Palestinian side will be Saeb Erekat and Palestinian intelligence Chief Majid Faraj.

The king called the meeting between the two leaders following a recent phone conversation with Abbas. Abdullah wants to discuss Trump's peace plan, which sources close to Abbas say is expected to be unveiled by the White House soon, as well as its implications.

Ahmad Majdalani, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, said the Americans are trying to frame the Gaza discussion as a humanitarian issue while ignoring the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

"The Palestinian leadership is firm in its decision to sever relations with the administration since Trump's declaration [recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital]. That will continue until the attitude towards Jerusalem and the two-state solution changes," Majdalani said.
