The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dave Boyer

Pres­i­dent Trump will host King Ab­dul­lah II of Jor­dan at the White House on Wed­nes­day, his first face-to­face meet­ing with the key U.S. Arab ally.

The White House said Mr. Trump and the king “will ex­change views on a range of shared in­ter­ests in the Mid­dle East, in­clud­ing how the United States and Jor­dan can best de­feat the Is­lamic State ter­ror group, end the con­flict in Syria and ad­vance peace be­tween Is­raelis and Pales­tini­ans.”

The two men will also dis­cuss “how to fur­ther strengthen co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the United States and Jor­dan and pro­mote peace and pros­per­ity in the Mid­dle East,” the White House said.

Mr. Trump also will host Egyp­tian Pres­i­dent Ab­del-Fat­tah el-Sissi at the White House on Mon­day, seek­ing greater co­op­er­a­tion on coun­tert­er­ror­ism and other is­sues.
