Jordan is an important partner in the renewed efforts to rekindle the frozen peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday in Rome.
“Jordan is an essential partner to peace. It borders Israel, has already engaged in many activities regarding security, regarding trade and relations,” Kerry said before meeting Jordan’s Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh.
“It is absolutely critical for all of us to try to move speedily and with focus to try to get to a place where everybody understands we are engaged in a serious process to reopen negotiations. Jordan will play a key role in that,” Kerry said.
