Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elaraby said Tuesday that the pan-Arab organisation appreciated and backed Jordan's efforts with the concerned parties to kick-start serious and time-lined peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel.

He said during a meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Affairs Nassir Judeh that negotiations should embrace the two-state solution, an independent and fully sovereign Palestinian state on Palestinian soil along the June 4, 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital within a final peace deal that guarantees the security and peace of all regional states.

The meeting also tackled other key developments in the Middle East, mainly the growing threat of terrorism and international efforts to counter it, as well as boosting cooperation among Arab countries "in a manner to serve the pan-Arab issues and address the unprecedented challenges the region is facing." On Syria, Judeh and Elaraby concurred that a political solution is the only way to end the Syrian crisis.

The foreign minister and the Arab League chief also agreed to pursue coordination between Jordan and the 22-member Arab League, particularly after Jordan took over as the League's ministerial council's current presidency and the Kingdom's membership of the United Nations Security Council.
