Jordan’s King Abdullah urges lasting Gaza ceasefire after meeting Biden

In a White House meeting, President Joe Biden and King Abdullah II of Jordan discussed strategies to end the Gaza war. Disagreements arose on the approach as King Abdullah emphasized the need for an immediate and lasting ceasefire, while President Biden focused on a hostage deal for a six-week pause in the fighting.
Biden acknowledges Palestinian suffering but says Washington shares Israel’s goal of defeating Hamas.
Funding for UNRWA, suspended by Biden, was not addressed. Abdullah urged support for UNRWA, emphasizing its crucial mandate despite delivery restrictions.
