Jordan warns of ‘grave consequences’ if Israel annexes West Bank

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi tells a meeting of donors to Palestinians that West Bank annexation will end chances for peace and “will not go unanswered.”

If it does “there will only be fiercer conflict. Annexation will make the two-state solution an impossibility; it will make institutionalization apartheid inevitable; it will diminish all chances for lasting a comprehensive regional peace,” Safadi warns.

Safadi says all efforts toward peace “could be lost” if annexation plans move ahead, and calls thwarting it the top priority for the international community.

“We warn of the grave consequences of the implementation of the annexation decision on the endeavor to achieve regional peace and on Jordanian-Israeli relations,” he says.
