US President Donald Trump discussed with Jordan’s King Abdullah the possibility of establishing safe zones in Syria, the White House said on Thursday.
Trump met with King Abdullah briefly in Washington on Thursday morning, the White House said in a statement.
Trump said last week he would establish safe zones in Syria for refugees fleeing violence in the war-torn country.
Earlier before the white House announcement, Israeli daily Haaretz reported that King Abdullah warned Trump against relocating the American embassy in the Zionist entity to al-Quds (Jerusalem) in their meeting in Washington on Thursday.
According to the report, the Jordanian King told Trump that moving the embassy could threaten the two-state solution and have a detrimental effect on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The White House said the two enjoyed a “good conversation” on a range of regional issues, but did not mention the issue of the embassy relocation.
The Jordanian news agency Petra reported that Trump and the Jordanian King “underlined the importance of boosting the strategic ties between the two countries and working together to fight terrorism.”
The news agency also said the two discussed the peace process between the Palestinians and Israelis but did not provide details.
