AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday left on a working visit to the US and is scheduled to hold a summit meeting with US President Barack Obama on Wednesday at the White House, a Royal Court statement said. 

The two leaders will discuss strategic relations and partnership, regional and international efforts to combat terrorism, the latest developments in the Syrian crisis and efforts to resolve the conflict through a political solution and ways to revive Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations. 

His Majesty visited the US last month and met with senior administration officials and key lawmakers. No meeting was scheduled with Obama, but the two leaders met briefly at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington, and agreed to meet in February. 


HRH Prince Feisal was sworn in as Regent.
