AMMAN, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Jordan and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) stressed on Wednesday that there is no alternative to the two-state solution in ending the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and achieving peace in the Middle East, state-run Petra news agency reported.
At a meeting between Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi and Secretary General of the Executive Committee of the PLO Saeb Erekat, they emphasized that terrorists may take advantage of the despair brought by the lack of progress toward the peaceful solution that can end occupation and lead to the creation of an independent Palestinian state.
Both sides called for more efforts to renew serious negotiations to realize the Palestinians' legitimate right to statehood based on the borders of 1967 with east Jerusalem as its capital.
Erekat and Safadi warned against any unilateral moves that change the status quo in east Jerusalem and alter its Arabic identity.
They said the peace on the basis of the two-state solution is a strategic option that is in line with the Arab Peace initiative, which was adopted by the Arab states in 2002.
