King Abdullah tells Putin Moscow needed for progress in Middle East

ordan’s king told Russian President Vladimir Putin that Moscow plays a pivotal role in efforts to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, during a meeting between the two in Moscow Wednesday.

“The world should realize that without Russia, it is nearly impossible to make serious progress in the region,” King Abdullah II said, in a meeting that highlighted security and economic cooperation between the two nations, according to the Russian news agency TASS. “Of course, we are very grateful to Russia for the role it plays in the Mideast region.”

He added that Moscow could particularly lend a hand in solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the civil war in Syria.

According to TASS, Putin offered similarly kind words for his counterpart and extolled the Hashemite kingdom’s ability to maintain stability in the Middle East.

Russia has been heavily criticized for its perceived meddling in the Middle East, particularly in the Syrian Civil War, where Moscow has remained a steadfast ally and weapons supplier of the Alawite-Assad regime.

Jordan, a Sunni-majority country, has sharply denounced Damascus for human rights abuses and called on President Bashar Assad to step down on numerous occasions.

Russia and Jordan both maintain economic and security links with the Jewish state, while simultaneously loudly supporting the Palestinian cause.

The meeting also detailed an energy agreement between Moscow and Amman that promises to build a nuclear power plant in Jordan by 2020.
