( dpa ) - Jordan's King Abdullah II held talks Wednesday with visiting Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Seniora and voiced support for the Arab League plan envisaging a solution for the political standoff in Lebanon, according to an official statement.
"The blueprint adopted by the Arab League is a step in the right direction," the monarch was quoted as telling Seniora who arrived earlier in Amman earlier in the day on a visit to Jordan.
"The commitment to implement this plan will pave the ground for ending the crisis in Lebanon," King Abdullah said.
The Arab League three-stage initiative envisages the election of a new president, the formation of a new government and the enactment of a new election law.
King Abdullah urged the Lebanese to resort to compromise to resolve their country's problems including the election of a new president.
"Dialogue among various political groupings and current represents the ideal way to surmount differences and boost national concord with a view to safeguarding the country's sovereignty and interests," the monarch said.
Seniora held talks earlier in the day with his Jordanian counterpart Nader Dahabi and told reporters that he supported the Arab league plan totally.
