AMMAN - Jordan on Sunday warned against the impasse in efforts to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

In a meeting with visiting Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Jordan's Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi underlined the need for action to create a new political horizon to resolve the conflict.

The solution, he said, should be based on the two-state solution that ensures the rights of the Palestinians and leads to create an independent Palestinian state at the borders of 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The two sides called for launching "serious and effective" international efforts to end the conflict in line with the international legitimacy resolutions and the 2002 Arab Peace initiative as the sole method for attaining lasting peace in the Middle East.

Safadi said Jordan will continue to place all its capabilities and efforts to resolve the conflict to end the occupation and ensure that the Palestinians obtain their rights in living in freedom and dignity.

Erekat voiced appreciation for Jordan's continued efforts to support the Palestinians.(FA)
