VP Pence visits Jordan on Mideast peace mission

The king told the vice president that the only solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a two-state solution and that East Jerusalem must be the capital of the future Palestinian state. He is worried the move could trigger violence between Muslims and Christians. Mr. Pence called Mr. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “a historic decision,” but insisted that the United States takes no position on boundaries and final status issues. He said the United States is “committed to continue to respect Jordan’s role” as the custodian of Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem. Pence will finish his trip in Israel.
