Jordan’s King Abdullah will meet with US President Joe Biden at the White House on Monday.

The two leaders will “discuss the ongoing situation in Gaza and efforts to produce an enduring end to the crisis. Towards that end, the two leaders will discuss the US effort to support the Palestinian people, including through enhanced humanitarian assistance into Gaza and a vision for a durable peace to include a two-state solution with Israel’s security guaranteed,” the White House says.

The visit will also celebrate 75 years of diplomatic relations between the US and Jordan, while working to deepen those ties, the US readout adds.

The US stop is one of four Abdullah is making along with Canada, France and Germany, as Amman seeks to drum up support for a ceasefire in Gaza, his office says.
