Jordan's Abdullah 'pessimistic' about peace prospects

Jordan's King Abdullah is "pessimistic" about the possibility of a peace agreement in the coming years, he said in an interview with The Washington Post.
In the interview he stated "2011 will be, I think, a very bad year for peace. Although we will continue to try to bring both sides to the table, I am the most pessimistic I have been in 11 years."
He also said that the conservative political climate in Israel has made it impossible for concessions to be made for peace.
