Report: Abdullah plans Knesset speech

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Jordan’s King Abdullah II reportedly plans to deliver an address in Israel’s Parliament. Nabil Amr, an aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, told the Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper Monday that Abdullah plans to address the Knesset as part of his effort to promote a Saudi initiative for Arab-Israeli peace. Jordanian sources said the report was basically true but that Abdullah has yet to set a date to visit Jerusalem. Abdullah was expected for talks Sunday in Ramallah but canceled because of bad weather. He is scheduled to meet Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at a conference Tuesday in Petra.
