King Abdullah of Jordan met with senior White House officials last week and discussed the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the regional fight against terrorism, the situation in Syria and Iraq and ways to combat the feud between the Sunni countries in the Gulf, Haaretz reports.

His visit was discreet as all events were not open to the press, but Abdullah met with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, according to the Jordanian Embassy.

Abdullah, who has visited the U.S. three times since President Donald Trump took office, stressed to Kushner the importance of the peace process and how progress in those talks could help make things better in the region.

Trump has reportedly considered pulling out of the peace talks following a tense meeting between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Kushner, who is also Trump’s son-in-law. Abbas was reportedly "furious" that Kushner pushed him to condemn a terror attack in Jerusalem and for protesting his rejection to meet with U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman because of Friedman's support for settlement construction.
