AMMAN, May 28 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Thursday reaffirmed its rejection of Israel's plan to annex part of the Palestinian territories in the West Bank.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi made the remarks during a call with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, during which the top Jordanian diplomat said that such step by Israel would only undermine peace opportunities.

Safadi emphasized that a just and comprehensive peace is an Arab strategic option that Jordan will always seek to realize, the Jordanian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Safadi said Jordan calls for joining efforts to launch serious and direct negotiations based on the two-state solution.

The two sides agreed to continue cooperating to develop bilateral ties and coordinating to address regional crises, the statement said. Enditem
