Jordan’s King Abdullah II received in Amman yesterday (Sunday) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. A statement issued by the Jordanian Royal Court said that the meeting, which took place at Al Husseiniya Palace in Amman, “discussed the latest developments in Israel after the dissolution of the Knesset, and their repercussions on the chances of achieving peace, in addition to the developments in the region.”
Palestinian sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that the meeting carried a Jordanian confirmation that political developments in the region will not be at the expense of the Palestinians. According to the sources, “the king wanted to reassure Abbas, and the Palestinian president wanted Jordanian support before the expected arrival of US President Joe Biden in the region” on July 13 (July 13). The two sides agreed that the only way to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a “two-state solution” along the lines June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital. King Abdullah II pointed out that Jordan is in constant contact with the US side, and is working to make the Palestinian issue top the agenda of the US president’s visit, and that he will emphasize, at the joint summit in Jeddah, in the presence of Biden, the centrality of the Palestinian cause.
