Jordan and Germany support two-state solution to Palestinian issue
Jordan and Germany on Monday voiced their support for the two-state solution that entails the creation of an independent Palestinian state living side by side with Israel, the state-run Petra news agency reported.
At a meeting with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Judeh said the creation of an independent Palestinian state is the sole way to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and make peace in the region, Xinhua reported.
The German minister said his country wants Israel to be safe and wants a viable Palestinian state, adding that the way to that end is through talks, not confrontations.
Also on Monday, King Abdullah II of Jordan met with the German officials and discussed developments in the Middle East.
The king Abdullah also met with special envoy of the Mideast Quartet Tony Blair and looked into methods to revive the stalled peace process.
The Jordanian leader stressed the significant role of the European Union in creating suitable atmosphere for the resumption of the Palestinian-Israel talks.
