Jordan: Israeli PM on unexpected visit to Jordan
AMMAN, Jordan (AP) -- Jordan's Royal Palace says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in Amman for talks with the king on the latest in Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations.
The palace says in a statement to The Associated Press that Netanyahu and King Abdullah II are holding talks behind closed doors on Thursday about the "developments in the peace process" and Israeli-Palestinian negotiations sponsored by the U.S.
The visit was not previously announced. Netanyahu made at least three similar visits to Jordan last year.
Jordan maintains cordial relations with Israel under a peace treaty signed in 1994 -- one of only two signed agreements the Jewish state has with an Arab nation.
