AMMAN (Ma'an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday discussed the latest developments in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with Jordanian King Abdullah II, according to Palestinian media.
"We have presented what we have and (what we've) heard," Abbas said. "Meetings will continue as usual, especially these days with Kerry's visit to the region," the official Wafa news agency reported.
"We discuss what is proposed to us with the King so we have a united position for Jordan and Palestine, without ambiguity or vagueness," Abbas said.
"Kerry continues to propose ideas, (and) we are discussing these ideas. ... We are also holding meetings with (Kerry's) aides to make the ideas clearer before a framework agreement can be proposed."
Abdullah said that it was a priority to protect the national Palestinian interest, especially regarding a final status agreement.
The Jordanian King reiterated his position on a solution to the conflict, supporting the rights of Palestinians to establish an independent state within the 1967 boundaries with East Jerusalem as its capital.
