National Security Adviser Eyal Hulata returns from a working visit to Jordan, the Prime Minister’s Office announces.

Ties with Jordan, which were tense under the previous government, had been markedly improving over the past year under the current government until tensions erupted during the month of Ramadan. Since then, the visible high-level contacts that had occurred in prior months have stopped.

Hulata’s visit, and the official announcement publicizing it, could be a sign that the sides are interested in getting past the recent downturn in relations.
