Mansour Abbas met with Jordan’s King Abdullah

Jordanian King Abdullah secretly met at his palace in Amman for several hours on Monday with the head of the Ra’am (United Arab List) Party and Deputy Knesset Speaker Mansour Abbas, Jordanian and Israeli officials confirmed.

The visit was coordinated with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.

The king’s palace said the visit dealt with the Palestinians and how to advance the peace process and cooperation between Israel and Jordan. The king voiced his support for what he called “his Palestinian brothers” to achieve what he called “their just and legitimate rights.”

Abdullah reiterated his support for a Palestinian state within pre-1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital and said Jordan would continue maintaining Muslim and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.

Abbas praised the king’s views on the Palestinian issue and his efforts to maintain the status quo in Jerusalem in support the residents of east Jerusalem. He thanked Abdullah for helping Israeli Arabs with education and with visiting the holy Islamic city of Mecca.

Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu said Abdullah met with the true prime minister of Israel, while Bennett continues destroying Israel.

Likud MK Miki Zohar said the meeting was proof that the current government is being run by the Islamic Movement.
