King meets Cameron on way back home
Amman, 18 February 2014
His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday met British Prime Minister David Cameron at 10 Downing Street over bilateral ties and regional developments.
The meeting took place as King Abdullah was en route home from a North American tour that took him to Mexico and the US.
The King and Cameron discussed developments in the region including the impact of the Syrian conflict and what more could be done to bring about an end to the bloodshed.
The British premier acknowledged the significant burden the conflict in Syria has placed on Jordan and other neighbouring states and reiterated the government’s ongoing support for Jordan to help manage the refugee influx.
On the Middle East peace process, His Majesty and Cameron agreed that US Secretary of State John Kerry was playing an important role and that his efforts had their united and strong support.
Syria, bilateral ties and Mideast peace were the key topics on the King’s two-and-a-half-hour summit meeting with US President Barack Obama in California.
The King, who returned home Tuesday night, also met with key legislators, administration officials and Arab, Muslim and Jewish leaders during the US leg of the tour.
