The US official made the remarks in a press conference with Minister of Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi, where he stressed that the US was committed to making peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
He added that the decision "does not preclude a two-state solution if that is the solution the parties seek."
The US official also stressed on Jordan's key role in achieving Mideast peace.
"We believe that the two-state solution that ensures the creation of an independent Palestinian state at the borders of 1967 with east Jerusalem as its capital is the sole way for peace," Safadi was quoted as saying.
"Our views are different via Jerusalem, but the challenge now is how to move forward and how to make sure a difficult situation does not get worse," Safadi added.
