WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama told Jordan's King Abdullah on Friday that the United States would increase aid to his country and provide additional loan guarantees.

Obama, speaking after a visit with the Jordanian leader at the White House, said the two men discussed Iran and it was unclear whether Tehran would seize its chance for a deal in nuclear talks with western powers.

The United States and its allies were making slow but steady progress against the terror group known as Islamic State, Obama said.
