Jordan's King Wants to Solve the Middle East Crisis

Voicing support for Palestine’s efforts to seek full United Nations membership, King Abdullah II of Jordan today called for a vigorous international push with concrete steps to end the Middle East crisis based on the two-State solution of Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace.

“Not words, not process, but a decisive end to conflict and a new beginning in peace, the peace that comes from real statehood and recognized rights for Palestinians, allowing people to look forward in dignity and hope, a peace that brings real security for Israelis, outing aside their fortress mentality and achieving acceptance in their neighbourhood and the world,” he stressed in a speech to the General Assembly on the opening day of its annual general debate.
