Jordan's King Abdullah: No peace process or peace solution without U.S.

King Abdullah of Jordan said that there will not be a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict without the United States, despite US President Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"We cannot have a peace process or peace solution without the role of the United States," said the King of Jordan at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday.

Abdullah said that Arab leaders must "reserve judgment" on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict because the Americans have not yet come out with their peace plan.

Although he agreed that US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the US embassy to the holy city is a "complication for Jordan," he remained open to the possibility of peace talks in the region.

"The subject of Jerusalem has to be part of a comprehensive solution for Israel and the Palestinians," said Abdullah.
