The Jordanian website Almustaqbal-a.com reported on a speech by Prince Hassan bin Talal, Jordanian crown prince between 1965 and 1999, to Palestinians from Nablus on Oct. 9.
"Prince Hassan stressed that the West Bank is part of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which included both banks of the [Jordan] River" and added that Hassan "did not personally oppose the two-state solution, but that this solution is irrelevant at the current stage."
He added that even if the two-state solution does not materialize, there are other options. According to Hassan, "both sides, Arab and Israeli, no longer speak of a political solution to the Palestinian problem."
He implied that even the Oslo Accords had met their end, and said that Arab losses from the Accords are estimated at $12 billion.
The report added: "The attendees understood that Prince [Hassan] is working to reunite both banks of the [Jordan] River, and commended him for it."
Prince Hassan later added: "The unity that existed between the west and east banks for 17 years...was arguably one of the best attempts at unity that ever occurred in the Arab [world]."
