King Abdullah, a staunch US ally, has also in recent months warned that Israeli policies along with Trump’s peace plan would lead to conflict and deal a blow to Israeli-Jordanian relations.
AMMAN – Jordan’s King Abdullah warned on Monday that any unilateral Israeli moves to annex territory in the West Bank would fuel instability and dim hopes of a final settlement of the decades-old Arab-Israeli conflict.
The monarch told British lawmakers the only path to a comprehensive and lasting Middle East peace was the establishment of an independent Palestinian state based on land captured by Israel in the 1967 war, and with East Jerusalem as its capital.
