Statement by the Press Secretary on the Visit of King Abdullah II of Jordan

President Obama will host His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan at the White House on Friday, April 26.  The President deeply appreciated the hospitality he received in Jordan last month and looks forward to continuing his consultations with King Abdullah on Jordan’s political and economic reforms, the humanitarian crisis in Syria, and additional regional issues of mutual concern.  As the President said in Amman last month, Jordan is an invaluable ally and close friend.  King Abdullah's visit is a demonstration of the close partnership between the United States and Jordan.
