Jordan’s king tells Trump adviser peace can only come with a Palestinian state

May 29, 2019

AMMAN (Reuters) – Jordan’s King Abdullah told U.S. President Donald Trump’s adviser Jared Kushner on Thursday that a lasting Middle East peace can only come with the creation of a Palestinian state on land captured by Israel in a 1967 war and with east Jerusalem as its capital, a palace statement said.

Kushner, who arrived in Amman earlier, is leading a U.S. delegation to the Middle East this week seeking support for a late June workshop aimed at helping the Palestinians, a White House official said on Tuesday.
