AMMAN Jordanian King Abdullah II will visit US President Donald Trump in Washington next week, the White House said on Thursday.
In a statement, the president’s office said that King Abdullah and Queen Rania will visit on Monday to discuss “terrorism, the threat from Iran and the crisis in Syria, and working towards a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians”.
Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, recently met with King Abdullah in Amman to discuss the stalled Palestinian-Israeli peace process during a regional tour.
The meeting came less than a day after the Jordanian monarch hosted Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in a short, but rare, visit.
Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have been stalled since
