Jordan’s king to visit West Bank on Monday

Jordan’s King Abdullah II will visit the West Bank on Monday where he will hold talks with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, Palestinian officials said on Sunday. The visit, which Petra said would bolster efforts “to achieve peace and the creation of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders,” comes at a delicate political time for Abbas. The Palestinian leader has angered Israel and Washington over his attempt to secure full state membership for Palestine at the United Nations, and through his attempts to cement a reconciliation deal between his Fatah party and the Islamist Hamas movement which rules Gaza.
