Jordan's King to US: Less Iran, More Israel

Jordan's King Abdullah II blamed the United States for focusing on the Iranian issue, at the expense of the peace process between Israel and the PA. In an interview with an Italian newspaper the king was also critical of Prime Minister Netanyahu whom he claimed had made him many promises, but did not keep them.

In addition, Abdullah called for Israel to decide soon if it wants to implement the formula of two states and estimated that the window of opportunity may close, as he put it, in a year.
