Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman al-Safadi denounces the planned Israeli annexation of the West Bank in remarks delivered during a meeting with UN special Mideast envoy Nickolay Mladenov, according to the Jordanian newspaper al-Ghad.
“This decision will kill the two-state solution, making a one-state solution inevitable,” al-Safadi says. “The world cannot remain silent in the face of what this represents in terms of apartheid and racial discrimination.”
Al-Safadi says that annexation would destroy the foundations upon which the “nonviolent process” rests.
