BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed the Iranian nuclear deal amidst a host of other issues facing the Middle East with King Abdullah II of Jordan, while at a press conference in Amman on Thursday.

“We on the European side say that we want to preserve the Iranian nuclear deal. Of course we have a lot in common when it comes to the issue of ballistic rocket programs, the presence in Syria, the war in Yemen, where aggressive tendencies of Iran must not only be discussed but where we urgently need solutions,” Merkel said.

King Abdullah thanked Germany for understanding “the great burden of the Syria refugee crisis” and for being the largest donor of the Brussels conference.

In addition, Abdullah stressed that “There can be no peace, nor stability in the region without a just and lasting solution that leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, living side by side with Israel in peace and security.”

Merkel echoed his remarks by saying it is of central interest to Jordan “to resolve the situation of Palestinian refugees, who have already been here for a very long time, by accepting a two-state solution.”

Transcript:

SOT, Abdullah bin Al-Hussein, King of Jordan: “Jordan highly appreciates its close friendship with Germany and your country’s continued support for our development efforts, namely in our education and auto sectors. As the largest donor of the Brussels conference, Germany understands the great burden of the Syria refugee crisis, and is providing generous assistance to host countries such as Jordan.”

SOT, Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany (German): “You must carry out these reforms, although you stand before other great challenges, which of course has something to do with the war in Syria, and Jordan is particularly called for in terms of security policy. I would like say thank you for excellent cooperation in many different formats. We are now also connected in the so called ‘Small Group’ for the resolution of the Syrian conflict. We have a training mission here in Jordan, but we also get a lot of good, strategic advice on the situation in the region here. We are of course very grateful that you are hosting our soldiers, who I will visit this afternoon. They feel very comfortable and thankful for the hospitality of Jordan. This is an important part of our common path.”

SOT, Abdullah bin Al-Hussein, King of Jordan: “We also look to Germany as a leader in the European Union and on the international stage to support peace efforts in the Middle East. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict remains the region’s key issue, and Germany and the EU have a major role to play in advancing peace efforts based on the two-state solution. There can be no peace, nor stability in the region without a just and lasting solution that leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, living side by side with Israel in peace and security.”

SOT, Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany (German): “We on the European side say that we want to preserve the Iranian nuclear deal. Of course we have a lot in common when it comes to the issue of ballistic rocket programs, the presence in Syria, the war in Yemen, where aggressive tendencies of Iran must not only be discussed, but where we urgently need solutions. Advances in the Middle East peace process are unthinkable without Jordan. For many years we have seen no progress, but it is of central interest to Jordan to resolve the situation of Palestinian refugees, who have already been here for a very long time, by accepting a two-state solution.

LOL, FrancoGermania helped the Kurds since day one meanwhile, Iran is in bed with Erdogan as both are stealing Kurdish land and oppress the Kurds for centuries… Had Saladin knew how his people would be treated, he’d have sided with the Crusaders and fought the good fight!

“spewing lies and deception”
=> In Judeo-Christian civilisation, all lies are from Satan while in Islamic culture, as Quran 3.54 says, “Allah is the greatest of deceivers”, so Taqiyya and kitman are quranic concept and are viewed positively.
If Merkel lies and deceives, so she’s a hidden Muslim? You should love her!

Except the ancestors weren’t listened by the Pope and the king : they wanted to ally with Hulagu Khan.
The Chinese shall wake up too : they’re as lukewarm as the Pope was, hopefully, the Tsar is with us and Salahudin-the-Kurd has finally understood, he’s no more a slave to the Mameluks…
Don’t worry, you’ll love democracy, we’re even delivering it.

“useless jordanian army done nothing to save palestine” => Jordan is ARAB-PALESTINE!!!! Look at the map! http://www.mythsandfacts.org/conflict/mandate_for_palestine/1922-mandate_for_palestine.jpg The rest is JEWISH-PALESTINE AKA ISRAEL! Read your own Quran, Surah 5.20; 5.21 and also 17.104 ! Even your so-called Allah say thisland is for the JEWS, not for the Muslims. ALLAH IS A ZIONIST AND YOU ARE SHIRK! “palestine who are dying everyday with th hand of zionist.” => Ridiculous! Just consider Hamastan, formerly known as Gaza. Population 1970 : 300,000. Population 2018 : 1,850,000… Warsaw’s Ghetto, Oct. 1940 : 375,000-400,000. May 1943 : ZERO… And they didn’t went on holidays but… Read more »

This is your, thief´s lie. In original maps Palestine was the territory of IL. IL delenda est! And you will live France in short time, too.

Israhell is a terrorist entity . Israel is a state built on lies and blood. Israel has attacked all bordering countries, some, like Lebanon, repeatedly and for decades. It occupied or annexed all of historic Palestine and territory from Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan. This not because it had to do so to survive. It is because imperialism backed the formation of Israel on stolen Palestinian land, not as a homeland for Jewish people but as an agent of war against Arab independence.

Nope, taken from the Quran,verify by yourself 🙂 These are your own fairy tales, poor wretch, as true as .338Lapua is a kâfir creation, so are the riffle, the carbine, the aircraft, the computer, the Internet. A Schlomo invention is the Atom Bomb (Oppeneimer). During the Trinity test, he quoted Lord Siva, saying : “Now I am death, the destroyer of the worlds” I must say that I’m happy we built Dimona for the Zios, so the k**es can really k**e a$$es if it ends being necessary. Well, I’d prefer not because of pollution but it’s clear that with the… Read more »

Yes pure invented figures like the 6,000,000 number. This hasbara agent douchebag, like all jews, likes to deceive and lie his way around the truth and cannot supply any sources to back up his bullshit. But the truth does not need defending it speaks for itself.

Taqiya and kitman are Islamic practises.
Islam destroyed the cradle of civilisation, the Middle-East…
Hasbara? Jew? LOL! If Jews were like those which I have the blood flowing in my veins, they’d have solved all their problems now…
We demolished the Roman Empire rapidly, so would we have done with the Arab-League, had we been the Jews…
