AMMAN (AFP) -- Jordan's King Abdullah II held talks on Monday with Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog on the Middle East peace process, a palace statement said.

"The king and the head of the Labor Party and member of the Knesset Isaac Herzog discussed efforts to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians under the sponsorship of the United States," the palace said without elaborating.

Herzog's visit to Jordan came as the United States is struggling to find a formula that would enable Israel and the Palestinians to continue faltering peace talks beyond an April 29 deadline.

US Secretary of State John Kerry last week visited Jordan, where he held seperate talks with the king and President Mahmoud Abbas.

Kerry was heading back to the region Monday, a US official said, adding that he would land in Tel Aviv and would possibly hold meetings in Jerusalem and Ramallah.

On Sunday Israel handed the Palestinians a proposal they hope will lead to an extension of their peace talks.

Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994.

As Far as the Palestinians are concerned vis a vis the so called peace talks , the opposition's opinion is as irrelevant as the US agreeing to free Jonathan Pollard. What the Palestinians want to discuss are the issues of borders , Jerusalem , Right of return . But Israel wants to talk about security ( for itself alone) and that it has an exclusive right to the land of Palestine . A non starter for peace talks.

You mean the same Issac "Boujie' Herzog,who in 2011(as Mk Minister for Soc.Aff)--after Palestinian boy Hsam Rwidy was attacked & murdered by Israeli"Death to Arabs"thugs/indoctrinated racists--stated,"Israel today feels like Alabama in the 1940's",& complained to S.Peres who ignored him? I hope Herzog reminds Abdullah of the words of Hsam's dad Hussein,"He murdered my son just because he is an Arab"? Well,King Abdullah is "an Arab" too? How safe does he feel with Israel's military "peace"?

- The States of Israel and Jordan Already have a peace agreement, and - The State of Israel and Authority of Palestine Never Will, and - The Authority of Palestine may not even exist for much longer, whether by another Hamas coup, or simply financial ruin, as international donations stop funding - The "State" That Will Never Be, and Terror That Will Never End !!!!
