Jordan urges prompt final status negotiations
Amman, 12/2/2007, (Communication & Information Division - Royal Hashemite Court) -- His Majesty King Abdullah on Monday said Palestinians and Israelis should promptly begin final status negotiations and warned against wasting more opportunities.
Time will be critical at the coming stage, the King told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who briefed His Majesty on the Mecca agreement between Fateh and Hamas on forming a unity government.
The King also cited that Palestinians and Israelis should support all Arab and international efforts to revive the peace process in line with the two-state solution.
King Abdullah said he supported the formation of a Palestinian government that would achieve the aspirations of Palestinian people and ease their hardship.
The King urged a unified Palestinian position to resume negotiations until an independent Palestinian state is established.
