Jordan's king is warning a jihadist state could emerge on his northern border in Syria with Islamic extremists trying to establish a foothold in the neighboring country.

King Abdullah II told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that in his view, Syrian President Bashar Assad was beyond rehabilitation and it was only a matter of time before his authoritarian regime collapses.

As President Barack Obama began a regional tour including stops in Israel, the West Bank and Jordan, Abdullah said the visit opens a "window of opportunity" for restarting Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
