Amman - King Abdullah II met Sunday with European Union ambassadors to Jordan and especially urged EU countries to help Israel and the Palestinians to restore the truce that was shattered during the last week, according to an official statement.

"The monarch urged the world community, particularly the European Union countries and the Middle East Quartet, to step in to help Israel and the Palestinians to take measures to restore calmness and build up mutual confidence so as the peace process achieves its goals," the statement from the Royal court said.

"It is important for both the Israeli and Palestinian sides to come to know that the future will be better than the current situation," the statement quoted Abdullah as telling the European envoys.

King Abdullah called it "imperative" for the Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip to be followed by "similar withdrawals from the West Bank, in compliance with the provisions of the road map".

He underscored the importance of the world's community's assistance to Iraq to enable Jordan's neighbor to "restore its security and stability".

"The King stressed the need for all Iraqi groupings to take part in the ongoing political process that has the aim of arriving at a free, independent and democratic Iraq," the statement said.

King Abdullah "expressed support for the Barcelona process, expressing hope that the forthcoming Barcelona summit will give a boost to the Euro-Med partnership", the palace added.
