Abdullah seeks to revive two-state solution, bury 'Jordan is Palestine'
Jordan wants to end talks of turning the kingdom into a Palestinian state and instead be center stage in regional developments. King Abdullah's meeting with US President Joe Biden may pave the way.

Jordan is hoping that King Abdullah’s meeting with US President Joe Biden will pave the way for the kingdom to return to center stage in regional developments, particularly the Israeli-Arab conflict. Jordan is also hoping that the meeting will put an end to the talk about transforming the kingdom into a Palestinian state. The meeting comes after years of tension between Amman and Washington under the administration of former US president Donald Trump. The tension reached its peak early last year when Jordan rejected Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Jordan said it was not consulted about the plan, which, it claimed, endorsed former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plans for extending Israeli sovereignty to parts of the West Bank.
