AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday met with the US President Donald Trump's Special International Negotiations Representative Jason D. Greenblatt, a Royal Court statement said.

The King and Greenblatt reviewed efforts to resume the Palestinian-Israeli peace process.

During the meeting, held at Al Husseiniya Palace, His Majesty stressed the US role in ending the stalemate in the Palestinian-Israeli peace process and reviving negotiations that should lead to a just and comprehensive solution to the conflict, based on the two-state formula.

He asserted that reaching a just deal of a comprehensive peace that includes establishing a Palestinian state will reflect on efforts to achieve peace, security and stability in the region.

For his part, the US senior official stressed that peace between Palestinians and Israelis will have positive impacts on the region, underlining the significant Jordanian role in supporting peace endeavours.   

King Abdullah met Trump last month ahead of an annual prayer breakfast in Washington.

His Majesty was the first Arab leader to hold talks with the new US administration. He had earlier during that week discussed the fight against Daesh, the Syrian crisis and other issues with Vice President Mike Pence.
