Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Friday praised US President Barack Obama's speech Thursday calling for a Middle East peace agreement based on a Palestinian state with 1967 borders.
"Jordan welcomes the speech of the US president who, for the first time, clearly spoke of his vision for the establishment of a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders which must enjoy autonomy," Judeh was quoted as saying by the Petra news agency.
He added that Jordan hopes an "agreement on borders and security is reached as soon as possible" between Israel and the Palestinians.
