Olmert planning to visit Jordan on Thursday

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will visit Jordan Thursday for talks on reviving the stalled Mideast peace process, Jordanian and Israeli officials said Tuesday. Olmert will meet with Jordan's King Abdullah II during his visit of several hours, Jordanian government spokesman Nasser Judeh told The Associated Press. Israeli Embassy press attache, Jacob Raber, confirmed Olmert's visit, saying the talks will be held in Amman. But he declined to provide other details. The prime minister's trip will be his second to an Arab country since taking office earlier this year. Olmert held talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak at the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik Sunday.
