Biden, Jordan's king discuss West Bank, Middle East stability


 , Updated 09:23, 13-Feb-2024

U.S. President Joe Biden and Jordan's King Abdullah on Monday discussed the importance of stability in the West Bank and in the Middle East more broadly,
the White House said in a statement.

Jordan's King Abdullah II appealed for a full ceasefire to end the war in Gaza after talks with U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday, warning against any offensive at all, according to a statement from King Abdullah II.

The U.S. is working on a hostage deal between Israel and Hamas that would lead to a period of calm in Gaza lasting for at least six weeks, Biden said, underscoring the importance of upholding the status quo at the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount and recognizing Jordan's crucial role as the custodian of Muslim holy places in Jerusalem.
