President Isaac Herzog will visit Jordan tomorrow to speak with King Abdullah II, becoming the second Israeli official to meet the Jordanian monarch in the past week.

The visit is being announced in advance and will be held in public — a rare occurrence in Israeli-Jordanian ties. Most visits by Israeli officials are kept tightly under wraps and only revealed after the fact.

According to the Israeli Presidency, Herzog and the king will discuss “deepening Israeli-Jordanian relations, maintaining regional stability with an emphasis on the upcoming holiday period, strengthening peace and normalization, and the many latent opportunities in relations between Israel, Jordan, and the wider region.”
