Jordan called for the immediate resumption of Arab peacemaking with Israel, saying Tuesday that the time was ripe after guns fell silent in the Hizbullah-Israeli conflict. King Abdullah II warned that the Lebanon conflict "could be repeated unless the international community shoulders its responsibility and works for a comprehensive solution to he Arab-Israeli conflict." Government spokesman Nasser Judeh said Jordan was working with Arab governments to revive the peace process with Israel. "We have to have negotiations and solve outstanding issues, particularly the Palestinian question," Judeh said, adding the "root-cause" of Mideast crises was the lingering Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
