Israeli Justice Minister in Jordan for Talks
Jordan's King Abdullah II on Tuesday received Israeli Justice Minister Yossi Beilin, who delivered a message from Prime Minister Ehud Barak and discussed the regional situation with the king, a palace source said.
Beilin and Abdullah exchanged views on Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, which are set to resume Tuesday in Washington after nearly three months of deadly clashes between Palestinians and the Israeli army.
Barak has also sent Yossi Sarid, head of the left-wing secular Meretz party, to Cairo for talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
