His Majesty King Abdullah, accompanied by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, met on Monday in New York with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Discussions, attended by His Royal Highness Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, His Majesty’s chief adviser for religious and cultural affairs and personal envoy, covered the strategic and deep-rooted ties between Jordan and the United Kingdom, and the latest regional developments.
