AMMAN —AlGhad— His Majesty King Abdullah II received the US House Foreign Affairs Committee delegation, led by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, on Sunday, at the Husseiniyeh Palace, to discuss further boosting of the US-Jordanian ties, as well as underway region developments.

HRH Prince Faisal attended the meeting, which addressed challenges posed by regional crises to the Jordanian economy, particularly the Syrian refugee crisis.

In this context, His Majesty said he appreciated US economic aid, which enabled the Kingdom to face such burdens and carry out developmental programmes.

The Middle East peace process also figured high on the discussion, with the King emphasising the need for intensive efforts to kickstart serious and effective negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis based on the two-state solution and the Arab peace Initiative.

The meeting also dealt with efforts to reach a political solution in Syria through the Geneva negotiating track, and regional and international efforts to fight terrorism.
