US Jewish Leaders Meet With King Abdullah in Jordan

By: JTA

Leaders of the American Jewish Committee met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Amman over the weekend to discuss political and strategic developments in the Middle East.

The AJC Board of Governors’ 16-member delegation, headed by President Robert Elman, met separately with the king and three Jordanian Cabinet members. They also spoke with Jordanian business leaders, policy analysts and diplomats, and the American and Israeli ambassadors to the country.

“Jordan is a valued strategic partner of the United States: uniquely positioned, uniquely vulnerable to instability across the region — particularly in neighboring Syria, and steadfast in its cooperation on mutual interests,” Elman said.

“For two decades, Jordan has also been a strong partner for peace with Israel. AJC recognizes the vital role King Abdullah has played — and continues to play — as a voice for peace, and as a pragmatic leader in a turbulent region.”

The delegation now is in Jerusalem for a three-day AJC Board of Governors Institute.
