King of Jordan, Abdullah II, warned on Wednesday that unless the question of Palestine is solved this year, all should pay a price, the London-based Alsharq Al-Awsat Arabic newspaper published.

During a special interview with the Alsharq Al-Awsat, Monarch of Jordan was quoted as saying: “Jordan has realized an American commitment and readiness to go forward to see a two-state solution for both Palestine and Israel, with a focus on final status talks’ issues such as Jerusalem and the refugees problem”.

The King maintained that the ‘rule of the game’ has changed after the recent Israeli war on Lebanon, therefore, all should realize the fact that unless the question of Palestine is solved, all would pay a price .

“Israel, from its part, should be committed to a just solution that guarantees restoration of all Palestinian legitimate rights including the right to a Palestinian state with full sovereignty over the Palestinian territories, living side by side in peace and security with Israel”, Abdullah II made clear.

His majesty also stressed that the question of Palestine is the core of Middle East conflict, voicing the hope that the international community will realise such a fact in a way that would spare terrorism and extremism in the region.

Since the start of the Madrid Middle East peace conference in 1991, Jordan has ever believed that all tracks of peace negotiations, including the Israeli-Syrian, should have been kept going on, the King told the newspaper.

The Jordanian Monarch called for mobilizing international backing for resumption of Palestinian-Israeli peace talks, leading eventually to a two-state solution, ‘otherwise peace will never prevail in the Middle East’.

Jordan and Israel signed a peace treaty in 1994, three years after the multilateral Madrid peace conference was held under the auspices of both United States and Russia.
