This should be done with the aim of “finding a real horizon for achieving a just and complete peace on the basis of the two-state solution”.
Israel and Jordan recently began holding public and covert meetings again after a period of tense relations under right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Israel’s new coalition government, a disparate coalition with fellow right-winger Naftali Bennett at its helm, took power last June.
