Jordan: 'We urgently need solutions' to Mid. East problems — Merkel meets King Abdullah

German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed the Iranian nuclear deal amidst a host of other issues facing the Middle East with King Abdullah II of Jordan, while at a press conference in Amman on Thursday. «We on the European side say that we want to preserve the Iranian nuclear deal. Of course we have a lot in common when it comes to the issue of ballistic rocket programs, the presence in Syria... Еще, the war in Yemen, where aggressive tendencies of Iran must not only be discussed but where we urgently need solutions,» Merkel said. King Abdullah thanked Germany for understanding «the great burden of the Syria refugee crisis» and for being the largest donor of the Brussels conference. In addition, Abdullah stressed that «There can be no peace, nor stability in the region without a just and lasting solution that leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, living side by side with Israel in peace and security.» Merkel echoed his remarks by saying it is of central interest to Jordan «to resolve the situation of Palestinian refugees, who have already been here for a very long time, by accepting a two-state solution.»
