Israeli-Palestinian talks at a 'dangerous impasse': Jordan

King Abdullah II

Talks to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are at what the Jordanian King has described as 'a dangerous impasse'.

King Abdullah II addressed the General Assembly on Wednesday as world leaders continued to express their views on various global issues.

He said it is only by establishing a viable Palestinian state and ensuring security and recognition of Israel that lasting peace can be achieved in the Middle East.

"We are today at a dangerous impasse. The opportunities of a year ago to move talks forward toward a clear-cut end game failed to gain momentum. Negotiations have come to a halt. Frustrations are at a peak. Even as we speak, Israeli settlement activity is ongoing despite every ruling of international law, and in the face of strong international protest."
