February 3, 2014 (TSR-Al Manar) – Jordan’s Foreign Minister Nasser Jawda said on Sunday that Jordan is against recognizing the so-called Israel as a Jewish state and Jordan will not be an alternative home for Palestinians, Alray Palestinian news agency reported.

Speaking during a parliament session which dealt with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s peace plan, Jawda reiterated that Jordan will not be an “alternative home for anybody.”

“Jordan is integrally involved in and has big role in the Palestinian-Israeli talks,” he added.

Jawda stressed that Jordan is not absent from the peace negotiations and will not accept any solution that contradicts with the country’s interests and national security. “Jordan will not negotiate on behalf of Palestinians regarding their envisioned state’s borders with Israel,” Judeh added.

Jawda described American efforts to push peace talks between the Zionist entity and the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a “serious attempt” to reach tangible results.
