Jordan's Abdullah Visits Abbas in Ramallah

The leaders discussed efforts to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, senior Fatah official Mohammed Shtayyeh told AFP Saturday. Abbas also suspended all contacts between the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government until Israel removed the cameras at the end of the month.

Although the Jordanian king and Abbas purportedly meet regularly, Abdullah's visit to Ramallah meant to demonstrate Jordan's support for the PA amid a power struggle between the PA and the Gaza-ruling Palestinian terror group Hamas.

United States President Donald Trump should declare that the ultimate goal of peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians is the creation of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders, the Palestinian chief negotiator said Monday.

King Abdullah II (C) of Jordan leaves after meeting with President of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas (2nd R) in Ramallah, occupied West Bank on 7 August 2017.

President Abbas expressed appreciation for Jordan's efforts under the leadership of His Majesty to support the rights and just cause of the Palestinian people.

He said both sides agreed to form a joint crisis cell to evaluate the previous phase, draw lessons and evaluate any future challenges regarding the situation in al-Aqsa Mosque.

Petra, the Jordanian news agency, said talks focused on "the need for preserving the historic and legal status quo in noble Jerusalem and to not hurt it because there will be negative consequences for the entire region". By contrast, Palestinians say Jared Kushner, Trump's son-inlaw and the United States peace coordinator, sides with Israel against them.

Last week, a speech Mr Kushner gave to congressional interns was leaked to the U.S. tech news website Wired.

Jordan's king received a warm welcome in Ramallah on Monday.

President Abbas checked into a local Ramallah hospital recently and was declared fit after what was called a "routine" checkup.

The AL has adopted several resolutions to support Palestinians, including the one issued at the recent Amman summit aimed at doubling financial aid to Palestinians in Jerusalem, he added.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had said on July 27 that he wanted Al-Jazeera expelled amid tensions over a sensitive Jerusalem holy site.
