AMMONNEWS - His Majesty King Abdullah II received at al-Husseiniya Palace on Sunday the Chairwoman of the US House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and her accompanying delegation.

During the meeting, which was attended by His Royal Highness Prince Faisal Bin Al Hussein, the two sides reviewed the strategic partnership between Jordan and the United States and ways to expand joint cooperation in all fields.

King Abdullah praised efforts of the committee's Chairwoman Ros-Lehtinen to enhance relations of cooperation and friendship between the two countries and her supporting positions to the Kingdom.

On the Middle East issues, the King stressed the necessity of intensifying efforts to re-launch negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis to reach a just and lasting peace based on the two-state solution leading to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The talks also touched on developments related to the Syrian crisis, as well as the burdens arising from the Syrian refugee crisis on the Jordanian economy and its limited resources.

For her part, Ros-Lehtinen commended the King's unrelenting efforts to achieve peace and stability in the region.

Advisor to His Majesty, Director of the King's Office, and the Chargé d'affaires at the American Embassy in Amman attended the meeting.
