Jordan and Spain on Saturday reiterated their support to proximity talks between the Palestinians and Israel, saying it is necessary they lead to direct peace talks.

At a joint press conference in Amman, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh and his Spanish counterpart Miguel Angel Moratinos stressed the need to render proximity talks a success.

The indirect four-month proximity talks between the Palestinians and Israel started on May 4. The direct talks between the two sides were suspended late 2008 following Israel's aggression on the Gaza Strip.

In the press conference, Judeh said he discussed with his counterpart means to make these proximity talks succeed and encourage involved partied to demonstrate seriousness and strong commitment.

Judeh said the involved parties should deal with high degree of responsibility and show strong commitment to the two-state solution, which leads to the creation of an independent Palestinian state that lives side by side with Israel in peace and security.

Moratinos, who commended Jordan's role in attaining Middle East peace, said it is time to make peace efforts "genuine", stressing his country's support to the United States in the indirect peace talks as they are held under its patronage.

Moratinos said Spain and Jordan reach consensus in this regard, saying the two-state solution is a necessity.

Also on Saturday, the Spanish minister met with Jordanian Prime Minister Samir Rifai and discussed bilateral ties and developments in the region, the state-run Petra news agency reported.
