WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama will host Jordan's King Abdullah on May 17 to discuss unrest across the Middle East and the quest for Arab-Israeli peace, the White House said on Monday.

The visit by the king comes three days before Obama meets Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu whose relationship with the president has sometimes been strained.

Obama's attempts to broker a Middle East peace deal have yielded little since he took office, but he has insisted there is an urgent need to seize the opportunity created by political upheaval in the broader Arab world.
