PA welcomes Jordan reconciliation role

By Mohammad Ghazal JORDAN TIMES

RAMALLAH – His Majesty King Abdullah on Monday reiterated Jordan’s support for the unity of the Palestinian people and efforts to realise national reconciliation that paves the way for a unified Palestinian stance.

King Abdullah emphasised Jordan’s full support for the Palestinians and the Palestinian Authority (PA) to realise their aspirations in liberty and creating an independent state on the Palestinian national soil with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The King made his remarks during talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah during a visit yesterday, the first official visit by the Monarch to the West Bank since Abbas assumed the presidency.

King Abdullah said Jordan will continue supporting the PA’s efforts in the international arenas to obtain independence and create a sovereign state through negotiations and in line with international legitimacy resolutions.

His Majesty said resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict should address all final status issues, mainly the issues of refugees and Jerusalem, leading to a lasting and just peace that ends the tension in the region.
