Jordanian King Abdullah blamed Israel for the impasse in peace talks with the Palestinians, saying leaders in Jerusalem were "sticking their heads in the sand," in an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Tuesday.

He warned that a failure to renew the diplomatic process could lead to instability in the Middle East.

"If we can't get the Israelis and Palestinians together in this next couple of days, then what signal is that for the future process?" Abdullah said in New York, where he is attending meetings at the United Nations. "If we are…back to the drawing board, I think we're back beyond that," he said. "It will have a very negative impact, I think, on all of us."
