Jordan condemns Israeli Knesset vote on Jerusalem

Amman, Jan 2 (Petra) –– Jordan on Tuesday condemned the passage in the Israeli Knesset of a bill that requires a two-thirds majority in the legislature for relinquishing any part of Jerusalem under any future peace accord.

State Minister for Media Affairs and official government spokesman Mohammad Momani said East Jerusalem is part of the territories occupied in 1967 and that the city is a final status issue, whose fate should be determined through negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis according to relevant international laws.

Momani stressed that all unilateral moves to impose new realities on the ground or alter the status of Jerusalem are null and void under the international law, including the bill, which was passed late yesterday.

The spokesman warned against the gravity of steps Israel had taken recently, including the Jerusalem bill and a vote in the ruling Likud Party's Central Committee to extend the Israeli law to Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, which, he said, would undermine the two-state solution.

The only solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, he stressed, is the two-state solution that guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on June 4, 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

He said that there is no alternative to the internationally-backed two-state solution to solve the conflict and achieve security and stability in the region.
