'Obama, Jordan's Abdullah discuss Israeli-Palestinian peace'

US President Barack Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II held a phone conversation on Monday to discuss efforts to resume the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, AFP reported Tuesday.
Obama “expressed his appreciation for Jordan’s staunch support for a two-state solution and comprehensive peace in the region, and told the King he considers Jordan to be an integral partner of the United States,” according to a White House statement cited by the French news agency.
The Jordanian monarch reportedly told Obama that the US “plays a key role in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which is a priority to achieve a comprehensive peace in the Middle East," adding that “efforts must be intensified to launch negotiations that would lead to a two-state solution, which enjoys an international consensus.”
