King Abdullah and Crown Prince Mohammed expressed pride in the strong, historical relations between the two countries and peoples, stressing keenness on expanding cooperation in all fields.

 His Majesty and the Saudi crown prince noted the need to maintain coordination and consultation on issues of mutual concern, in service of shared interests, as well as Arab and Islamic causes.

The King highlighted Saudi Arabia’s pivotal role, under the leadership of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, in promoting joint Arab action, commending Saudi Arabia’s efforts to host the 32nd Ordinary Session of the Council of the League of Arab States at the Summit Level in Riyadh next month.

The meeting covered regional and international developments, foremost of which are the Palestinian cause and crises in the region.

His Majesty reaffirmed the need to support the Palestinians in attaining their just and legitimate rights, and to step up Arab and international efforts to create political horizons for the Palestinian cause that would pave the way towards relaunching negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis for just and comprehensive peace, on the basis of the two-state solution.

The King attended a suhour banquet hosted by Crown Prince Mohammed in his honour.

Their Royal Highnesses Prince Feisal bin Al Hussein, Prince Talal bin Muhammad, and Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, as well as Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Al-Safadi and Director of the Office of His Majesty Jafar Hassan, and a number of senior Saudi officials attended the meeting and the banquet.

His Majesty King Abdullah then returned to Jordan on Thursday after performing Umra, according to a separate Royal Court statement.
