Jordan, Bahrain Discuss Mideast Situation
The leaders of Bahrain and Jordan discussed Tuesday means to restart Middle East peacemaking and end ongoing Palestinian-Israeli violence.
Talks between Jordan's King Abdullah II and Bahrain's King, Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, focused on the "oppressive Israeli practices against the Palestinian people and efforts to push forward the (Mideast) peace process," Bahrain News Agency reported.
