BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Jordan's King Abdullah II held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Amman on Thursday.

"King Abdullah and Netanyahu discussed peace process developments in light of the current US-sponsored Israeli-Palestinians peace negotiations," a palace statement said.

Last week, King Abdullah met with President Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

The king said at the time that it was a priority to protect Palestinian national interests, especially regarding a final status agreement.

US Secretary of State John Kerry coaxed the two sides back to the negotiating table in July after a three-year freeze, and they have agreed to keep talking for nine months.

Israel has issued plans for thousands of illegal settlements since talks began and insists on having a military and civilian presence in the Jordan Valley, a third of the occupied West Bank.

AFP contributed to this report.

It's all so funny, "Israel" is an occupier and demands security and the right to defend itself. They also demand Palestinians don't have that right. Palestinians must sit down and let themselves being shot, humiliated, arrested and expelled from their homes and land. If Hamas defend the Palestinians they are called "terrorists". Are the "Israelis" really brain-dead?

@1 The difference is Israel is surrounded by fifty seven, mostly hostile Islamic nations.

Sarah #1 - Israelis are not brain-dead, just the opposite. The prove is - just last year four Israelis received Nobel prizes. Another two Israelis received Nobel prizes in 2012. And it is this way almost every year. Please, remind me how many Arabs receive Nobel prize last year? Or year before? Ever? And how many of those Arab Nobel prize winners are palestinians? Can you answer now who is brain dead?

To 1) No Sarah, the zionazis are not brain dead: they are self-assured and determined to rid themselves of all Palestinians. They are venal!

# 1) Sarah/ The Netherlands... Israelis have been brain dead for years but the West seems to have ignored it so far but coming round to accepting. Wont be long before these barbaric Israelis get the taste of their own medicine.
