President Obama will meet with Jordanian King Abdullah to discuss renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

“The President looks forward to discussing a broad range of bilateral and regional economic and security issues during their Oval Office meeting, including King Abdullah’s leadership in advancing our shared goal of a negotiated peace between Israel and the Palestinians,” a White House statement said Tuesday.

The meeting will take place Jan. 17. 

Israeli and Palestinian negotiators met Tuesday in Jordan for the second time in a week. The talks, relaunched at Abdullah’s behest, have yet to produce results. Neither side would discuss the talks on the record.
