Israel’s President Isaac Herzog met with Jordan’s King Abdullah this week, Herzog’s office said in a statement on Wednesday.

“During the warm meeting, held at King Abdullah’s invitation, the President and the King discussed deep strategic issues, at both bilateral and regional levels,” the statement said.

“The visit also addressed the protection of stable Israeli-Jordanian relations and the need for dialogue with all actors in the region,” it said.

Herzog’s visit was coordinated with the prime minister and foreign minister.

U.S. President Joe Biden is planning to visit the Middle East in mid-July. He will visit Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the West Bank.
