HANOI — Lower House Speaker Atef Tarawneh on Saturday briefed the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s (IPU) Middle East Affairs Committee on the region’s issues as well as Jordan’s reform process and its efforts to achieve regional peace and stability.

Participating in the IPU’s second assembly meeting, which opened in Vietnam’s capital on Saturday, Tarawneh told members of the committee that resolving the long-running Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which entails the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, is the key to all the region’s problems.

He also explained that Islam is innocent of the deviant ideologies of terrorist organisations, adding that Muslim countries are in a relentless war against radical groups attempting to hijack Islam.
