AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday met in Amman with US Senators James Inhofe and Michael Enzi and an accompanying delegation, according to a Royal Court statement. 

They discussed the strategic relations between Jordan and the United States and ways of expanding cooperation in various fields.

During the meeting, which was attended by HRH Prince Feisal, King Abdullah expressed Jordan's appreciation for the support provided by the US to the Kingdom, especially in the defence field.

The meeting dealt with regional developments, particularly the efforts to revive the peace process and the importance of the US role in this regard.

The meeting also touched on the crises in the region and the efforts aimed at finding political solutions to them, restoring security and stability for their people, in addition to the burdens imposed by the Syrian refugee influx on the national economy and the already meagre resources.

They also went over regional and international efforts in the war on terrorism and the need for a holistic approach to the threat.

The US lawmakers expressed their appreciation for Jordan's efforts under the leadership of His Majesty the King to achieve peace and enhance security and stability in the region, the statement added. 


The meeting was attended by Royal Court Chief Fayez Tarawneh and King’s Office Director Jafar Hassan.
