Jordanian parliament against principle of recognizing Israel of Jewish state

The Jordanian parliament issued a statement in which it announced that it is against the principle of recognizing Israel as a Jewish state within the framework of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.


In the statement, Jordan's position was presented: Granting refugees right of return and the establishment of a Palestinian state along '67 lines with its capital as east Jerusalem. Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh spoke this week in Parliament and said that the demand to recognize Israel as a Jewish state is unacceptable. (Roi Kais)
