Report: Netanyahu, Abdullah meet to discuss peace process
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan's King Abdullah II met in Jordan to discuss the Middle East peace process.
The meeting took place last week, the French news agency AFP reported on Saturday, citing an anonymous diplomatic source. The source told AFP that the leaders discussed the Middle East peace process.
It is Netanyahu's first visit with a foreign head of state since the Jan. 22 national election. The meeting comes in advance of President Obama's visit to Israel and Jordan later this month.
Jordan last year sponsored meetings between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators in a failed attempt to jumpstart the stalled peace talks.
Netanyahu and Abdullah reportedly met in Amman in December to discuss chemical weapons in Syria's civil war.
