King meets with Burns
Amman, 29 January 2014



His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday stressed that Jordan’s top priority is safeguarding its higher strategic interests, especially those concerning final status issues.

During a meeting on Wednesday with US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, King Abdullah voiced Jordan’s full support to the US-brokered peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis that should ultimately lead to the establishment of an independent and viable Palestinian state within the pre-1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital on the basis of the two-state solution and the Arab Peace Initiative.

On Syria, the King renewed Jordan’s “unaltered stance that calls for a comprehensive political solution to Syria’s crisis that can safeguard its territorial unity and end the suffering of its people”, highlighting in this regard the burdens on the Kingdom resulting from hosting the largest number of Syrian refugees.

Ways to enhance the Jordanian-US relations in all fields were also discussed during the meeting which was attended by Royal Court Chief Fayez Tarawneh, His Majesty’s Office Director Imad Fakhoury and US Ambassador to Jordan Stewart E. Jones.
