In a pre-recorded speech to the UN General Assembly, Jordan’s King Abdullah II says the fighting between Israel and Gaza-based Palestinian terror groups in May underscored that “the current situation is simply unsustainable.”

“General security for either side, indeed for the whole world, can only be achieved through a two-state solution,” he says, calling for a Palestinian state established on the 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.
