King Abdullah of Jordan has insinuated that relations between Israel and Jordan may suffer if Israel does not facilitate progress with the Palestinians in Jordan, according to the Al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper.

The report stated that Abdullah was able to convince PA president Mahmoud Abbas to hold discussions in Amman by intimating that Jordan would consider diplomatic sanctions if Israel failed to “demonstrate it is willing to make significant concessions which will allow the Palestinian leadership to justify their return to the negotiating table.”
