Jordan's Abdullah: There's a Window for Peace

King Abdullah II of Jordan said, Thursday, that the visit of United States President Barack Obama to the region opens a window of opportunity for peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Interviewed by the Associated Press, ahead of Friday's scheduled arrival of Obama in his country, the king said, “I see a window of opportunity to restart negotiations on the basis of a two-state solution, which is the only formula.” He called on the newly-formed government of Israel to take advantage of the opportunity and work quickly for a just and lasting peace.
