Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was in Jordan Wednesday for talks expected to focus on his country's nuclear program, Iraq and Mideast peacemaking.
Mottaki went into a meeting with his Jordanian counterpart, Abdul-Illah al-Khatib, shortly after his arrival in the Jordanian capital for a brief visit. Their meeting was to focus on bilateral relations and regional issues, the Jordanian Foreign Ministry said.

Amman has said the arms, discovered April 18, were to be used in attacks against Jordanian public institutions and officials.
