Jordan's King Abdullah meets Netanyahu in Amman for talks

Jan. 16, 2014 1:32 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 17, 2014 8:20 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Jordan's King Abdullah II held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Amman on Thursday.

"King Abdullah and Netanyahu discussed peace process developments in light of the current US-sponsored Israeli-Palestinians peace negotiations," a palace statement said.

Last week, King Abdullah met with President Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

The king said at the time that it was a priority to protect Palestinian national interests, especially regarding a final status agreement.

US Secretary of State John Kerry coaxed the two sides back to the negotiating table in July after a three-year freeze, and they have agreed to keep talking for nine months.

Israel has issued plans for thousands of illegal settlements since talks began and insists on having a military and civilian presence in the Jordan Valley, a third of the occupied West Bank.
