Jordan warns against absence of effective Mideast peace negotiations

Jordan on Monday warned against the continued absence of serious and effective negotiations to achieve a just and comprehensive peace based on the two-state solution.

There is no alternative to the two-state solution that guarantees an independent, sovereign Palestinian state, Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said during a meeting in the capital Amman with the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland.

Safadi said that Jordan will continue to exert efforts to reach the two-state solution.

Safadi also stressed that Israel’s “continuous settlement policy and seizing of Palestinian lands” undermine the two-state solution.

Safadi and Wennesland reviewed the efforts made to re-launch the peace process, support the Palestinian Authority, maintain calm in the occupied Palestinian territories, and rebuild the Gaza Strip.

Wennesland valued the Jordanian role to achieve a just peace.
