Reviving Mideast negotiations in Jordan’s best interest – King

AMMAN (JT) – Returning the Palestinians and Israelis to the negotiating table is in the best interest of Jordan and Germany, His Majesty King Abdullah said on Tuesday, warning that the continued lack of peace will destabilise the region.

“It is in our vested interest, both Jordan and Germany, to make sure that the Israelis and Palestinians come back to the peace tables, and we will be working under the European coordination to see how we can achieve that,” he stressed.

The King held talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin yesterday to discuss efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East and the challenges facing the region. The two leaders also discussed bilateral ties and means to develop them in all fields.
