White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the meeting will focus on political, security and economic issues.
“His majesty’s visit will highlight the enduring and strategic partnership between the United States and Jordan, a key security partner and ally of the United States,” Ms. Psaki said in a statement. “It will be an opportunity to discuss the many challenges facing the Middle East and showcase Jordan‘s leadership role in promoting peace and stability in the region.”
