King Abdullah pessimistic about Mideast peace

Post by yukon » Sat Oct 18, 2008 10:54 am

Jordan's King Abdullah II said he doubted a Palestinian-Israeli peace deal will be clinched by January 20 when President George W. Bush
steps down, in an interview Saturday in Spain's El Pais daily.

"For the first time I view myself as pessimistic. And I believe I am one of the most optimistic leaders in the Middle East," said the
monarch, who starts a tour of Spain later Saturday.

"The success of the peace process will depend on whether there are successful advances between Israelis and Palestinians when the
next U.S. administration takes over," he said.
