AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday received an invitation from Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz to participate in the Arab summit slated to be held in Dhahran on April 15.

HRH Prince Feisal, the Regent, received King Salman’s invitation letter during a meeting with Saudi Ambassador to Jordan Prince Khalid Bin Faisal at Al Husseiniya Palace, according to a Royal Court statement.

During the meeting, Prince Feisal expressed the Kingdom’s keenness to help render the upcoming summit a success, hoping that the high-profile pan-Arab meeting would come up with decisions that contribute to a more effective joint Arab action and serve just causes of the Arab nation and collective Arabs’ interests. 

Royal Court Chief Fayez Tarawneh and Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi attended the meeting.

Jordan is the current president of the Arab summit, which was held in Amman in March last year.

Last week, His Majesty met with Arab League Secretary General Ahmad Aboul Gheit, who handed the King an evaluation report on pan-Arab joint action during Jordan’s rotating presidency of the Arab summit.

During the meeting, Aboul Gheit praised the Kingdom’s presidency term, during which, he noted, various decisions were issued that stressed the centrality of the Palestinian cause as well as the importance of peace settlement conflict based on the two-state solution with East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
