Jordan's king plans to raise with US President George W. Bush the importance of making progress on Palestinian-Israeli issues when Bush is here later this week for talks with Iraq's prime minister, the chief Jordanian government spokesman said Monday. Jordan's King Abdullah II will host Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in Amman on Wednesday and Thursday, in a visit that U.S. officials have said will have Bush focusing on efforts to stabilize Iraq. But Nasser Judeh, the spokesman, said Abdullah was "exerting intensive efforts for repositioning the Palestinian issue as the core problem" in the region. He said the Jordanian ruler will urge Bush to come up with a solution to the Palestinian issue. The comment underscores the fact that many Arab leaders view the Palestinian-Israeli crisis as the region's biggest problem, surpassing even the violence in Iraq.
