US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived in Jordan late Sunday for talks that the Jordanian government hopes will culminate in renewed American efforts to revive the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Rice opened talks with Jordan's King Abdullah II behind closed doors shortly after arrival at the monarch's residence, known as Beit al-Urdun, or House of Jordan. Reporters were kept away from the premises, while photographers and cameramen were given access only to Rice's handshake with Abdullah. A Jordanian official said before the talks opened that the king wants to hear from Rice about US ideas for reviving the peace process. "Obviously, the Palestinian issue is the core of the Arab-Israeli conflict and lies at the center of regional problems, and we want to see renewed American efforts to resolving this conflict," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to comment before the talks have ended.
