Jordan believes postponing a US-sponsored Mideast peace conference is plausible if more time is deemed necessary to adequately complete preparations between the Israelis and Palestinians, a senior official said Wednesday. "We strongly support the idea of the conference, and we believe that the meeting should be convened," the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of his remarks ahead of Abdullah's meeting with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in London on Thursday. "But we believe that if a delay would have a beneficial outcome to the meeting, or that more time is needed to prepare adequately for the conference, then be it," added the official, who is well-informed on Jordanian policy making. The official said Jordan's position hinges on the desire of other Arabs involved, including the Palestinians, Egyptians, Saudi Arabians, as well as Israel.
