King of Jordan to visit Palestine Thursday

Dec. 5, 2012 4:52 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 6, 2012 12:41 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- King Abdullah II of Jordan will visit Palestine on Thursday, the ambassador of Palestine to Jordan Atallah Khairi said Wednesday.

Khairi confirmed that Abdullah’s helicopter would land at the Muqataa in Ramallah midday Thursday.

The Jordanian monarch will pay a short visit to Ramallah in the central West Bank where he is scheduled to meet with President Mahmoud Abbas.

Jordan’s premier Abdullah al-Nusoor will accompany Abdullah along with foreign minister Nasser Judah, Jordanian Royal Court chief Riyad Abu Karaki, director of the king’s bureau Imad Fakhouri and the king’s special secretary.

A delegation of journalists will arrive in Ramallah earlier Thursday morning.

King Abdullah of Jordan will be the first leader of Arab country to visit Palestine after it was recognized as a non-member state in the UN General Assembly.
