Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II last week in Amman to discuss the peace process, according to a report in Agence France-Presse.

AFP said the meeting was likely related to President Barack Obama’s upcoming visit to the Middle East.

A senior official in Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s office told Israel Hayom that efforts have intensified recently to renew negotiations involving both the U.S. and Jordan.

New U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry recently said that Obama was not coming to the Middle East with a newly formulated peace plan, but he emphasized that Obama “plans to listen to both parties.”
