Jordan's King Visits West Bank; Shows Palestine Support

Thursday, 06 Dec 2012 05:22 AM

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Jordan's King Abdullah II is showing support for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' successful bid for U.N. recognition of a Palestinian state with a visit to the West Bank.
 
Abbas and the king are political allies, and last met Sunday in Jordan, during one of Abbas' frequent stops in the neighboring kingdom.

The king received a red carpet welcome with military honors at Abbas' government compound in the West Bank on Thursday after landing in a helicopter.

Last week, the U.N. General Assembly recognized a state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza, and east Jerusalem — lands Israel occupied in 1967 — as a non-member observer.
