DEAD SEA, Jordan (Reuters) - Jordan's King Abdullah said peace would not be attained in the Middle East without the creation of a Palestinian state under a two-state solution that would be the basis of a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace deal.

In a speech at the start of an Arab summit held beside the Dead Sea, King Abdullah said the kingdom's western neighbor Israel was wrecking the chances of peace by accelerating settlement building in occupied Palestinian territory.
