Obama to meet Jordan’s King Abdullah in California in February

WASHINGTON (TIP): US President Barack Obama will meet Jordan’s King Abdullah II at an exclusive California estate next month, the White House said on January 29.

The talks, likely to focus on Syria’s refugee crisis and Middle East peace moves, will take place on February 14 at the same desert resort — the Annenberg estate at Sunnylands near Palm Springs — where Obama met China’s President Xi Jinping for an informal summit in June.

“The president looks forward to discussing with King Abdullah opportunities to strengthen the US-Jordan strategic partnership and how to advance our political, economic and security cooperation,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

“The two leaders will also continue consultations on regional developments, including Middle East peace and Syria.” The Jordanian embassy in Washington said in a statement that the summit would take place as the king returned from a trip to Mexico and that he would also travel to Washington to meet key officials and lawmakers.
