via Jordanian King: Embassy move must come with Palestinian state – Israel National News

Jordan’s King Abdullah warned on Wednesday against moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, asserting that doing so at this stage “would have implications on the Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim scene, and would threaten the two-state solution.”

According to The Jordan Times, Abdullah, speaking on Wednesday during a meeting in Washington with US lawmakers including House Speaker Paul Ryan, claimed that “there is no alternative to the two-state solution.”

He said that the peace process between Israel and the PA must be given a chance to succeed, such that “moving the embassy must come within a comprehensive solution that leads to the establishment of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem [sic] as its capital, living side by side with Israel.”

He also claimed that an immediate move “could be potentially exploited by terrorists to stoke anger, frustration, and desperation in order to spread their ideologies.”
