The King and the Taoiseach agreed that both Ireland and Jordan should stay in touch in the coming days.

 

King Abdullah briefed the Taoiseach on efforts to secure an end to the conflict and to create a context for peace in the region, including his contacts with other regional leaders and his discussions with President Biden in Washington last week.

 

This work will be a focus at the Arab Summit due to convene in Bahrain this week.

They also discussed the humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, and in particular the situation in Rafah.

 

The King underscored the need for the international community to step up efforts to increase humanitarian assistance and the Taoiseach promised Ireland’s full support in advancing this work. The Taoiseach also congratulated the King on his silver jubilee.

The 25th anniversary of his accession to the throne will be formally marked on 9 June.
