Jordanian King Abdullah II on Sunday underlined the need for seriousness in dealing with the direct Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations scheduled to start in Washington on September 2, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

During a meeting here with Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Abdullah II stressed the need for dealing with the negotiations in the required serious manner to ensure that they address, as quickly as possible, all final status issues with an ultimate objective of realizing the two-state solution.

The two-state formula ensures the creation of an independent and viable Palestinian state that lives side by side with Israel in peace and security in line with the international resolutions, said the Jordanian leader.

The Jordanian leader said comprehensive peace starts by resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the two-state solution, which he said is the key to stability and security for all countries in the region.

Abdullah II said attaining Middle East peace is a strategic regional and international interest, calling for unified efforts by all involved parties to render the negotiations a success and ensure that they realize a tangible and quick progress.

The two sides discussed necessary measures to make the upcoming negotiations succeed and looked into efforts to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
