Jordan's king Abdullah has welcomed US President George W. Bush's call for an international Middle East peace conference, telling the US leader that relaunching Arab-Israeli peacemaking was a "positive step." "President Bush's call for holding an international peace conference to discuss ways to restarting the Palestinian-Israeli peace process according to a two-state solution is a positive step in the right direction," the Jordanian monarch, a close US ally, told Bush in a telephone call Monday. "This call will pave the way for achieving a real and tangible progress in the peace process leading to an independent Palestinian state to be established on Palestinian soil," Abdullah added, according to a palace statement released by his Royal Court Tuesday. The king, who is on a state visit to Canada, also described Bush's pledge for more than US$190 million in aid to the Palestinians as a "constructive step toward easing economic hardship facing the Palestinian people."
