King Abdullah II of Jordan will discuss the situation in the Middle East and other issues with Pakistani leaders during a daylong visit to the country's capital Thursday, a foreign ministry spokesman said. Abdullah has voiced support for a US-sponsored peace conference scheduled before the year's end, maintaining that the only way for Israel to enjoy stability and security is to establish a Palestinian state living in peace alongside it. He will meet Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf and other government officials in Islamabad before returning to Jordan later Thursday, said foreign ministry spokesman, Mohammad Sadiq, who provided no further details. Pakistan has no formal diplomatic ties with Israel, and backs the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994.
