Jordan's King Abdullah II said on Saturday that a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians would have to ensure Israel's security and acceptance and enable the creation of a Palestinian state.

Speaking at the world economic forum in Jordan, Abdullah went on to criticize "short-sighted leaders, who think they can close the door to peace."

The forum, held on the Jordanian side of the Dead Sea, brought together more than 1,000 people from 50 countries for two days of discussion on Arab economic development.
