A meeting was held in Amman between Jordan’s King Abdullah with Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud in Amman before the start of an Arab summit that will be held at the Dead Sea.

The Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the ongoing Syrian crisis are expected to be on the agenda.

Representatives of both countries signed 15 agreements and memorandums of understanding as both kings looked on, focusing on a number of sectors including social affairs, environment, media, culture, health and roads projects.

King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, who has overseen the launch of an ambitious economic reform plan since his accession two years ago, was recently on a month-long tour of Asia that took him to Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and China.
