Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas meets with Jordanian King Abdullah II in the capital Amman, the Wafa news agency reports.

Abbas briefed Abdullah on “the latest political developments in Palestine and the challenges facing our people as a result of the continuing Israeli crimes,” according to Wafa.

“The two leaders discussed bilateral relations and common issues between the two brotherly countries, as well as the latest political developments in the region,” the agency says.

The pair also discuss US President Joe Biden’s recent visit to the region, which included stops in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Wafa says Abdullah “stressed the firm position of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan towards the Palestinian cause and the kingdom’s unswerving support for the Palestinian people in obtaining their just and legitimate rights.”
