Official Jordanian sources confirmed on Sunday, November 4, 2018, that Israel has submitted a formal request to the Jordanian government to discuss the Baqoura and Ghamr lands.

The source did not reveal any further details about the nature of the request.

This comes two weeks after HM King Abdullah II issued a Royal Decree to terminate the two annexes to the Baqoura and Ghmar areas.

Under the terms of the Peace Treaty, Tel Aviv leased about 1,000 acres of agricultural land near its southern bordering line with Jordan as well as a small area known as the "Peace Island" near Lake Tiberias.
