Abdullah said Sunday he would not renew two of the treaty's annexes, that allowed Israel to lease two border areas from the Jordanians.
Israeli farmers are voicing concern over Jordan's intention not to renew parts of its landmark peace treaty with Israel that leased out two small border areas for agricultural work.
The lease is scheduled to expire on October 25.
"Our priorities in such hard regional circumstances are protecting our interests and doing everything necessary for Jordan and the Jordanians", Abdullah II noted, adding that Israel had been made aware of the decision.
On Friday, protesters in Amman called on the king to cancel the lease and reclaim sovereignty over the territories; others called on Jordan to cancel the entire peace treaty with Israel. In an "era of regional turmoil", the King stressed, "our priority in these regional circumstances is to protect our interests and do whatever is required for Jordan and the Jordanians".
ّIsraeli PM Benajmen Netanyahu, in public remarks reported by Reuters following the decision, said Israel "will enter negotiations with Jordan on the possibility of extending the current arrangement".
There was no immediate Israeli reaction. "The Jordanians might already be drinking Israeli water, are scheduled to be heating their homes with Israeli natural gas in 2020, and benefit in numerous ways from security cooperation with Israel, but, for the most part, they don't like Israel".
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu infuriated the Jordanians by arranging a hero's welcome for the guard.
Jordan shocks Jerusalem, downgrades peace treaty with Israel
It follows recent strains in the relationship between Jordan and Israel over issues including the status of Jerusalem and the lack of progress on a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. Last week, demonstrators demanding an end to Israeli ownership of the lands marched in Jordan's capital of Amman last week.
The deal was signed in November 1994 by Abdullah's father, King Hussein, and then-Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin.
When it was signed in 1994, the Wadi Araba treaty made Jordan one of only two Arab countries to have reached a peace agreement with Israel, along with Egypt in 1979.
Keinon said the problem is not so much between Jerusalem and Amman, but rather with the Jordanian people themselves.
The agreement will expire next year.
They have also been expanding economic ties in the past year including a major deal to export billions of dollars of Israeli gas to the kingdom through a pipeline that crosses their northern borders.
Under the treaty, Israel retained private land ownership and special travel rights in Baquora in the northwestern part of the kingdom and Ghumar in the south.
Israel's former ambassador to Jordan, Oded Eran, said he was not surprised by Jordan's decision, and said there was still time for the two countries to re-negotiate the agreement. The deal helped Amman to pave the way for U.S. economic and military assistance to the country.
