Jordan`s King urges restart of Mideast peace talks

Abdullah says the future for the Middle East and beyond is with the normalcy of peace.



Southern Shuneh: Jordan`s King has urged Israel and the Palestinians to look to the Arab Spring uprisings for inspiration and to restart their stalled peace talks.

Abdullah says the future for the Middle East and beyond is with the "normalcy of peace”.

He spoke at Saturday`s opening of a two-day special meeting of the Davos-based World Economic Forum held on the shores of the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth.

Abdullah says "shortsighted leaders may think they can shut" the door to peace — a rebuke believed directed at Israel`s right-wing government.

He says a Palestinian-Israeli deal must consider Israel`s "security and acceptance" and allow for the creation of an independent Palestinian state.
