    Jordan's King Abdullah II will start a visit to the United States on January 30.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Jordan's King Abdullah II will start a visit to the United States on January 30 and will hold meetings with members of the new administration of President Donald Trump and the US Congress, the Jordanian embassy in Washington, DC announced on Thursday.

    "King Abdullah II will start a working visit to US on Monday during which he will meet with new administration & Congress," the director of Jordan Information Bureau at the embassy, Dana Zureikat Daoud, said in a Twitter message.

    In November, King Abdullah said Trump’s policies would certainly change the existing state of affairs in the Middle East.

    On Wednesday, King Abdullah met with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss the Syrian settlement in the aftermath of the January 23-24 meeting of the government and opposition in Astana, Kazakhstan.
