Secretary Blinken also expressed concern regarding the increasing violence in the West Bank and emphasized the U.S. commitment to working with partners towards a durable and sustainable peace in the region, to include the establishment of a Palestinian state, a shared priority of both the United States and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

The Secretary thanked the King for his continued leadership and role in promoting regional stability and reaffirmed the strength of the U.S.-Jordan strategic partnership and U.S. commitment to Jordan’s security and economic prosperity.
