Pence, King Abdullah Clash over US Recognition of Al-Quds
Local Editor

US Vice President Mike Pence said that he and King Abdullah II of Jordan "agreed to disagree" over the impact of US President Donald Trump administration's decision to recognize al-Quds as the ‘capital' of ‘Israel.'

Pence met with the Abdullah II in the Jordanian capital of Amman Sunday as part of his three-country Middle East tour.

Speaking at a media conference, Abdullah told Pence that he looked to Washington to build "trust and confidence," but added that Jordan viewed the ‘Israeli'-Palestinian conflict as a "potential major source of instability" in the region.

Pence claimed he wanted to maintain Jordan's role as custodians of al-Quds' holy sites and reaffirmed Washington's commitment to a two-state solution.

For his part, the Jordanian king insisted that East al-Quds has to be the capital of a future Palestinian state established on lands occupied by the Zionist entity in 1967.

"We hope that the US will reach out and find the right way to move forward in these challenging circumstances," he said.
