Jordan hosts a summit between Biden and the Egyptian and Palestinian leaders – official media


AMMAN (Reuters) – On Wednesday, Jordan will host a four-way summit in Amman that includes US President Joe Biden and Egyptian and Palestinian leaders to discuss the “dangerous” repercussions of the war in Gaza on the region, state media reported.

An official statement said that the talks would focus on ways to stop “the ongoing war in Gaza and ways to find a political horizon that allows the peace process to be revived.”

Jordanian King Abdullah is scheduled to separately hold a tripartite summit with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

The Jordanian king warned on Tuesday against trying to push Palestinian refugees into Egypt or Jordan, adding that the humanitarian situation inside Gaza and the West Bank must be dealt with. The war in the Middle East is feared that the expansion of violence will have repercussions, as a large percentage of Jordan’s population are Palestinians.
