AMMAN, Jan. 22 — Jordan on Saturday stressed the importance of resuming serious and effective Palestinian-Israelis talks that are governed by a specific time frame, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

Jordan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Judeh said such talks should lead to the creation of an independent Palestinian state on the Palestinian national soil with east Jerusalem as its capital in line with international resolutions and the 2002 Arab peace overture.

The Jordanian minister made his remarks at a meeting with German counterpart Guido Westerwelle, who stressed the important role the EU plays in pushing peace talks forward.

The German official voiced his country's appreciation for Jordan's efforts to make peace and restore stability and security in the Middle East.

Jordan has announced lately that it will host a series of meetings between the Palestinians and the Israelis in a bid to restart peace talks. (PNA/Xinhua) rsv /rsm
