Jordan's King Abdullah set to visit White House
President Barack Obama meets with Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Wednesday to discuss the Syrian crisis
Resolving the conflict in Syria and meeting the needs of war-stricken refugees are expected to dominate discussions as President Barack Obama meets Wednesday with Jordan’s King Abdullah II.
Jordan shares a border with Syria and Iraq, and Abdullah’s visit to the White House takes place as his country struggles to accommodate more than 630,000 Syrian refugees.
The two leaders are meeting during an important moment in the 5-year-old civil war in Syria as Washington and Moscow will work to put in a place a fragile cease-fire designed to help end the conflict. The truce does not cover the Islamic State group.
