Foreign minister meets AIPAC delegation.

Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh discussed on Wednesday with a delegation form the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) efforts to bring about peace and stability in the Middle East.

Judeh noted to His Majesty King Abdullah II confirmation that the path to peace was clear, including the establishment of a viable and independent Palestinian state, according to the international resolutions and the Arab peace Initiative.

The minister highlighted the leading role of the U.S and the early involvement of U.S President Barack Obama and his administration to push forward the peacemaking efforts according to the two-state solution. He also underscored the importance of international community efforts to overcome barriers in front of resuming Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations.

Judeh reaffirmed the Arab peace initiative that guarantees establishing the independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, achieving peace in the region and normalizing relations between Arab and Islamic countries and Israel.

The FM said King Abdullah affirmed the need of the Jewish-U.S. organizations to support efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East according to the two-state solution, warning against wasting the available peace opportunity.

Jordan, the minister said, refused and condemned all the unilateral Israeli procedures in the Palestinian territories including Eastern Jerusalem. The Kingdom condemned the Israeli government's approval to build new 900 settlement units in the holy city.
