(JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Amman, according to a statement from Lapid’s office.

During the meeting, which Lapid’s office characterized as “long and warm,” the two leaders discussed bilateral relations, as well as the recent visit to the region of U.S. President Joe Biden and the resulting possibilities and opportunities, including the seemingly changing “regional architecture.”

Among the specific projects discussed were the Jordan Gateway Industrial Park, the construction of solar-power facilities and desalination facilities in Israel, joint tourism in the Gulf of Eilat-Aqaba, food security, agriculture and transportation links.
