Jordan's foreign minister lambasted the Israeli government's "radical racist agenda" on Monday saying that it was defying the world in its refusal to accept a two-state solution for Israel and Palestinians. 

"The only way out of this misery is a two-state solution," Ayman Safadi told reporters at an EU foreign ministers meeting in Brussels. 

"They are defying the whole international community and it is about time the world took a stand."

With a population consisting of over 60% Palestinians, Jordan must be cautious and demonstrate support for the two-state solution.

In 1970, King Hussein had come close to being overthrown by Palestinian groups based in Amman.

Black September remains in the memory of all Jordanian leaders.

Ayman Safadi cannot forget it.
