King Abdullah of Jordan, who was scheduled to meet with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas Sunday morning in Ramallah, was delayed due to weather. The planned summit marks the monarch's first visit to the PA territories since 2000, and is to be attended by the foreign ministers of Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. According to chief PA negotiator Saeb Erekat, the Abbas-Abdullah talks would focus on ways of reviving the Middle East peace process. Jordanian government spokesman Nasser Judeh told The Associated Press that Abdullah's visit "reflects the king's continuous and well-known position and efforts to push all the sides to the negotiation table and his full support for the establishment of a Palestinian state."
