Ra’am chief Mansour Abbas traveled to Jordan for talks with King Abdullah II, according to Israeli television, which didn’t specify when this happened.

Channel 12 news says the Jordanian monarch and Abbas, whose Islamist faction is part of Israel’s ruling coalition, discussed issues concerning the countries’ bilateral ties and other regional matters during their meeting in Amman.

Quoting an unnamed source familiar with details of the talks, the Kan public broadcaster reports the meeting was held at the request of the Jordanians.

The report also says Abbas updated Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid on what was discussed at the meeting.
