AMMAN — Prime Minister Hani Mulqi, on Sunday, said the Jordanian Dinar is strong and stable and is in reassuring conditions. He said foreign currency reserves are on the rise, currently amounting to USD12 billion.

Mulqi was reviewing foreign and domestic policies as well as economic and administrative reforms in a lecture at the King Hussein Club. The Dinar, he said, has been pegged to the US dollar since 1995, and there is no change in this policy.

The prime minister stressed that the Palestinian cause is the core issue and that the two-state solution is the only way forward. Jordan, he said, continues to urge the world community to push Israel to resume peace talks with the Palestinians within a set timeline.

Mulqi said Jordan will take all legal and diplomatic action to stop Israeli attempts to change the status quo in Jerusalem. He said Jordan had warned against relocating the US embassy to Jerusalem and its impact on the peace process.
