"Historical links getting stronger! EAM @SushmaSwaraj calls on His Majesty @KingAbdullahII Ibn Al Hussein, King of #Jordan. Good conversation on strengthening ties across all sectors, specially in trade & investment, defence & security, tourism and people-to-people exchanges," External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

The Jordanian king's visit here comes nearly three weeks after Prime Minister Narendra Modi travelled to Jordan as part of his trip to West Asia, including Palestine.

The prime minister and the king will hold extensive talks tomorrow covering entire expanse of bilateral ties, official sources said, adding, the Palestinian issue and ways to deal with terrorism, radicalisation and extremism are likely to figure prominently in the deliberations.
