Jordan's King Abdullah meets Netanyahu in Amman for talks

Story Code : 341948
"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.
