Ammon News - His Majesty King Abdullah II on Tuesday received Sweden Foreign Minister Tobias Billström.

The meeting, held at Al Husseiniya Palace, covered the latest regional developments and the dangerous situation in Gaza, with His Majesty stressing the need to reach an immediate and permanent ceasefire in the Strip, and calling on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities in increasing aid to Gaza and ensuring its uninterrupted flow.
