REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, AMMAN -- Jordan's Lower House on Sunday approved a proposal to re-examine the peace deal between Jordan and Israel following the decision by the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

The lower house made the decision during a session to discuss the decision by the U.S. president and its consequences.

The lower house tasked its legal committee with re-looking into all deals with Israel including the 1994 Wadi Araba peace deal that Jordan and Israel signed in 1994.

Jordan, which strongly condemned the U.S. decision and voiced its rejection of the move, witnesses several demonstrations by political parties and activists against the decision.

At the session on Sunday, Lower House Speaker Atef Tarawneh said Jordan will continue to exert efforts to find a solution to the decision and defend Jerusalem.

Tarawneh said an extraordinary meeting will be held this week for the Organization of the Islamic Conference in Turkey with the participation of Jordan to look into the situation.

A meeting will be held on Monday in Cairo by the Arab Parliament upon Jordan's request.

The lawmaker said unity among all Jordanians was key at this stage to address the current challenges.
