Leaders of the American Jewish Committee in a meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah II in Amman discussed political and strategic developments in the Middle East.

The AJC Board of Governors delegation headed by AJC President Robert Elman met separately over the weekend with the king and three Jordanian Cabinet members. The 16-member group also met with Jordanian business leaders, policy analysts and diplomats, and the U.S. and Israeli ambassadors to the country.

"Jordan is a valued strategic partner of the United States: uniquely positioned, uniquely vulnerable to instability across the region -- particularly in neighboring Syria, and steadfast in its cooperation on mutual interests," Elman said.

"For two decades, Jordan has also been a strong partner for peace with Israel. AJC recognizes the vital role King Abdullah has played -- and continues to play -- as a voice for peace, and as a pragmatic leader in a turbulent region."

Following its meetings in Jordan, which concluded Sunday, the delegation moved on to Jerusalem for a three-day AJC Board of Governors Institute.
