Amman, May 26 (DPA) Jordan’s King Abdullah II Sunday vowed continued support to the Palestinians in their ongoing peace talks with Israel until the establishment of an “independent state”. “We will not hesitate in performing any role or effort and exploiting our ties with influential powers and international forums to enable our Palestinian brethren to regain their right and set up their independent state,” the monarch said in a televised address marking the country’s Independence Day.
