Jordan's King calls for breaking deadlock of Mideast peace process


(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) AMMAN, June 19 (KUNA) -- Jordanian King Abdullah II on Tuesday urged harder efforts to break the stalemate in the Mideast peace process.
During a meeting with White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, the king also underlined the necessity of achieving just and comprehensive peace in the region, a Royal Court statement said.
This will enable the Palestinian people to realize their expectations in establishing an independent state on the June 4, 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as a capital.
The peace process should lead to serious and effective negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis based on the two-state solution, the Arab Peace Initiative and the relevant international legitimacy resolutions, the Monarch said. He stressed the US significant role in these efforts.
On Jerusalem, King Abdullah II reiterated that it must be settled as part of final status issues as a key for peace in the region.
In the meantime, the king said his country would carry on with its historical role in protecting the Islamic and the Christian sanctities in Jerusalem out of the Hashemite Custodianship on the city.
Today's talks reviewed the strategic partnership ties between Jordan and the US, as well as the latest developments on the regional and the international scenes, according to the statement. (end) ab.msa
