Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas meets with Jordanian King Abdullah II after arriving in Amman this morning.
The two parties discuss “recent political developments,” Abbas’s office says in a brief statement on the meeting, which was attended by numerous senior Palestinian and Jordanian officials.
The meeting comes “to confirm our continuing coordination to serve the interests of our nation, especially the Palestinian cause,” says senior Palestinian official Hussein al-Sheikh.
Separately, Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh meets Islamic Jihad faction head Ziyad al-Nakhaleh in Beirut during a diplomatic visit by Haniyeh to Lebanon.
Haniyeh has been on a regional tour recently, including stops in Qatar, Morocco, Mauritania and Lebanon to meet with Hamas-friendly politicians. Yesterday, the Hamas chief met with Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah.
