Israeli Ambassador to Jordan Daniel Nevo lauded the Hashemite monarch King Abdullah II on Friday morning as a vital moderator in the region at a time when Israeli-Palestinian tensions were flaring.

The ambassador's remarks came a day after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Amman with the king and US Secretary of State John Kerry to discuss the recent surge of unrest in the Middle East, pointedly in Jerusalem and at the Temple Mount complex.

"Israel recognizes the importance of King Abdullah as the custodian of Islam's holy sites in Jerusalem," Nevo told Army Radio. "We have never renounced this [position] - on the contrary, we try to clarify it and collaborate as much a possible."

"[Abdullah] is very significant in Jordan and to the world, because the king is very harshly criticized when there is tumult," the Israeli envoy told the radio station.
