Jordan's King: Stalemate in Peace Efforts Increases Tension


Jordan's King Abdullah met a delegation of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Monday, warning that the stalemate in peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and failure to revive the process would add to tensions in the Middle East and plunge the region into the unknown.

The Jordan Times reported that during the meeting with the delegates, the King explained that ongoing regional transformations should drive the Israeli government to embrace peace and stop unilateral measures that hinder peace efforts.
