King meets with US defence college delegates
Amman, 19 February 2014



His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday received a delegation from the US National Defense University (NDU), comprising generals and admirals serving in the Capestone Fellow programme.

King Abdullah reviewed with the visiting delegation, the outcomes of his recent visit to America and meetings with US President Barack Obama, Congress members and US organisations.

Efforts exerted to achieve peace in the Middle East as well as other regional issues, especially the Syrian crisis, were also discussed.

Royal Court Chief Fayez Tarawneh, His Majesty’s Office Director Imad Fakhoury and US Ambassador to Jordan Stuart E. Jones attended the meeting.

With its main campus at Fort Lesley J. McNair in Washington, DC, the NDU offers joint professional military education programmes under the direction of the chairman of the US joint chiefs-of-staff, according to its website.

It seeks to be “the premier national security institution focused on advanced joint education, leader development and scholarship.”

The university provides “rigorous” military education to members of the US armed forces and “select others” in order to develop leaders that have the ability to operate and creatively think in an unpredictable and complex world, according to the website.
