President Obama to host King of Jordan at Sunnylands

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama will host King Abdullah II of Jordan for talks at the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage next month.

The White House says the meeting will be Feb. 14. Last year, Obama used Sunnylands for two days of talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Abdullah hosted Obama last year during the president's trip to the Middle East. The two leaders have worked together closely on several regional issues, including the civil war in Syria which has created a refugee crisis in neighboring Jordan.

Officials in Jordan say Abdullah will also visit Washington during his trip to the U.S. for meetings with congressional leaders and religious groups.
