AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah is scheduled on Tuesday to start a visit to the US, during which he will meet President Donald Trump, a Royal Court statement said on Friday.

His Majesty’s talks with President Trump, planned for Wednesday, will focus on enhancing cooperation and strategic partnership between Amman and Washington, as well as regional and international developments.

King Abdullah is also set to meet with several members of the US administration, the statement added.

The King’s meeting with Trump will be the second in Washington following the February meeting, held on the sidelines of the annual National Prayer Breakfast, during which both leaders discussed ways to boost strategic partnership and enhance joint efforts to combat terrorism.

During the February meeting, King Abdullah and Trump agreed on the importance of providing safety and security to Syrians and of intensifying efforts to revive Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations.
