The Jordanian Prime Minister met with aides from key U.S. congressional committees Tuesday. No surprise that the main topic under discussion was the formation of a Palestinian state.
Does anyone see a pattern here?
Oh, and Zogby’s column this week was on the same topic.
From the Jordan Times 7/4/07:
Prime Minister Marouf Bakhit on Tuesday reiterated that the Palestinian question is the core regional issue, emphasising that finding a just solution for the Palestinian issue will help overcome most problems, including terrorism.
During a meeting with a delegation of US Congressional aides currently on a visit to the Kingdom, the premier said the Arab Peace Initiative represents a historic chance to achieve peace since it provides solutions that satisfy both the Arabs and the Israelis.
Bakhit voiced hope that the Israeli government would work to market the Arab peace proposal among the Israelis to provide it with better chances for success.
The Arab Peace Initiative offers Israel full peace and normal relations with Arab countries in return for the withdrawal from all Palestinian territories occupied after 1967, as well as an agreed solution to the refugee problem and the establishment of a Palestinian state.
