Jordanian King Abdullah II yesterday renewed his support for the establishment of a Palestinian state, Ma’an reported.
Speaking at the inauguration of the 18th Jordanian parliament, the King said that he supports the establishment of a Palestinian state in historic Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital.
He also renewed his commitment to protecting the Islamic and Christian holy sites in occupied Jerusalem.
Palestinian Authority ambassador to Amman hailed the King’s speech and his support for the Palestinian cause and the city of Jerusalem.
“The Palestinian issue is among the top priorities which the King concentrated on,” he said, pointing out that the PA and the Palestinians also hail the King’s speech.
He also said that the King’s guardianship of the holy sites in Jerusalem protected them from the aggression and changes that could have changed its Arabic and Islamic identity.
