King Abdullah, Mashaal discuss stalled peace process

January 28, 2013 17:24

Jordan's King Abdullah met in Amman Monday with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and discussed with him efforts to revive the stalled peace process and end the Fatah-Hamas dispute.

The meeting came amid reports that Jordan has asked Hamas to use its relations with the powerful Muslim Brotherhood organization to avoid chaos and anarchy in the kingdom. The Muslim Brotherhood has been spearheading protests calling for major reforms and an end to corruption in Jordan.

King Abdullah told Mashaal that Jordan supports efforts to achieve reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah, a Jordanian government official said after the meeting.
