Ex­trem­ism a re­sult of no Pales­tinian state

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

DUBAI—Pales­tinian state­hood is the most im­por­tant is­sue now fac­ing the world and that it fu­els ex­trem­ism grip­ping the Mideast, Jor­dan’s for­eign min­is­ter said Tues­day.

Nasser Judeh made the com­ment at the Arab Me­dia Fo­rum in Dubai. Pales­tinian cause rep­re­sents the essence of the con­flicts and crises in the re­gion,” he said.

He added that “ev­ery day of de­lay where the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity does not ex­ert pres­sure to­ward reach­ing a fair and just set­tle­ment of the Pales­tinian cause will lead to an­other day of dark­ness where the forces of ex­trem­ism and ter­ror­ism can act. Then hu­man­ity as a whole will pay the price.”

Peace talks be­tween Is­rael and Pales­tinian au­thor­i­ties on a two-state so­lu­tion have stalled. Is­rael’s For­eign Min­istry de­clined to com­ment on Judeh’s re­marks.—AP
