Israeli PM Netanyahu in Jordan for talks with King Abdullah

January 16, 2014 - 1:43 AM

AMMAN, Jordan - 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 are holding talks behind closed doors today 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 country.
