Jordan's prime minister urged Israel on Monday to stick with the US-backed road map peace plan with the Palestinians and refrain from unilateral decisions that would prejudice final status negotiations. Marouf al-Bakhit was responding to comments last week by acting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who said Israel would determine its border with the West Bank if peace talks do not resume, and then build a wall and move all settlers to the Israeli side. "During the recent Israeli election campaign, there were some statements that contradict and conflict with the references of the peace process which had been agreed upon by the international community supported by the Quartet and the world," al-Bakhit told reporters Monday. "While we recognize the sensitivity of the current situation, we stress the need to comply with the road map and all the references of the peace process which assert the importance of achieving a settlement through negotiations and refrain from undertaking any action that would prejudice the outcome of these negotiations," he said.
