The slogan “Jerusalem Is Triumphant” greets Abdullah in Ramallah
Jordanian King Abdullah and Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas held one-on-one talks at PA headquarters in Ramallah Monday, after which they refrained from talking to reporters by common consent. The monarch was greeted on arrival with a large placard showing the two leaders under the slogan: “Jerusalem is Triumphant.”
Ahead of his visit to Ramallah Monday, Jordan’s King Abdullah said that a breakthrough in the peace process was conditional on a US commitment to support a solution for the Palestinian issue. “Our success requires us to stand with our Palestinian brothers,” he told lawmakers in Amman Sunday.
In the Old City of Jerusalem, three Palestinians were detained when Israeli police and Border Guards broke up a riot under a hail of rocks. One police officer was injured.
