Jordanian King Abdullah the second, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have urged the international community to take immediate and effective steps to end the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip.

In a meeting in Jordan's capital of Amman on Tuesday, the two leaders discussed necessary steps to develop a firm international position in facing the Israeli policies that hinder peace talks. During the meeting, they emphasized the need for halting all unilateral Israeli measures. Talking to the press after the meeting, Abbas called on the U.S. to pressure Israel to stop plans to construct new settlements in East Jerusalem.

Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President, said, "This is part of Israeli measures that we categorically reject and consider it as an impediment to the progress of talks. Israel must stop and the U.S. should take this into consideration and demand Israel stop these measures."
