(Continued)

Roughly half of Jordan's 6 million people are of Palestinian origin.

"Achieving the two-state solution is part of our national strategic interest and key to stability in our region," Abdullah said.

"This is why we have always worked and will continue to work as hard as we can toward this goal. We have been doing our homework, together with like-minded countries in our region," Europe, Russia, the U.N. and the United States.

He said Washington's leadership "is vital to resuming meaningful negotiations. Our job is to ensure that the U.S. does not have to do the heavy lifting by itself, that we collectively do something differently and urgently that re-launches final status negotiations so that we do not miss an increasingly narrowing opportunity to silence the rallying call for violence and extremism in this region and beyond."
