The Israeli presidency reported today, Saturday, that President Isaac Herzog paid a secret visit to Jordan last Sunday, during which he met King Abdullah II at his palace in Amman.
The presidency statement explained that the meeting dealt with “issues of strategic depth, whether at the bilateral or regional level.”
The two sides also touched on import issues, agriculture, energy, and solutions to the climate crisis.
Israeli media indicated that Herzog coordinated his trip to Jordan with Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
It is noteworthy that in the month of March, relations between Tel Aviv and Amman became lukewarm after the cancellation of the visit of the then Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to the UAE due to the difficulties in coordinating the trip to Abu Dhabi via Jordanian airspace.
Shortly before that, Jordan’s Crown Prince Hussein canceled a visit to Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, due to differences with Israel over security arrangements.
