Jordan king to attend emergency Arab summit, Islamic summit in Mecca

AMMAN (Rahnuma):  King Abdullah II of Jordan will head a delegation to Mecca for the emergency Arab summit called by Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, state-run Petra news agency reported Wednesday.

The emergency summit is slated for Thursday night, a day before the 14th Ordinary Session of the Islamic Summit Conference of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) held in the same city, which King Abdullah will also attend.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry said recently that the two summits aim to negotiate and coordinate reinforcement of regional security and stability.

The summits would discuss the regional developments, including the recent attacks on commercial ships near the United Arab Emirates waters and two oil pump stations in Saudi Arabia, and the stability of the global oil supply.
