Jordan urges successful Gaza pullout

Aug. 3, 2005 at 11:41 AM   |   Comments

AMMAN, Jordan, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Jordanian King Abdullah said Israel's imminent withdrawal from Gaza could be a start for a total pullout from Palestinian territories.

Speaking after a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Amman, Abdullah said efforts should be focused on making the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza in mid-August a successful operation.

Abdullah warned against inter-Palestinian conflicts, noting a successful withdrawal from Gaza could be the beginning of the process to create an independent Palestinian state.

Abbas said Palestinian authorities will seek to impose total control on the territories evacuated by Israel.

Abdullah is scheduled to meet Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, who will visit Amman on Thursday.
