Saudi, Jordan kings meet on regional concerns

The Jordanian delegation included Dr. Fayez Al-Tarawneh, chief of the Hashemite Royal Court, Foreign Minister Nasser Judah, Jaafar Hassan, Chief of the Joint Gen. Mishaal Al-Zeben and General Intelligence director Gen. Faisal al-Shobaki.

Since September both kingdoms, along with Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, have been taking part in U.S.-led air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Syria.

Jordan’s king warned this month that the fight against ISIS is a “third world war.”

The group has declared a “caliphate” in parts of Syria and Iraq, the nation bordering both Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

ISIS militants have been accused of widespread atrocities, including beheading Western hostages.

Saudi involvement in the coalition has raised concerns about possible retaliation there.

On Thursday Saudi Arabia said it had arrested three alleged ISIS supporters for shooting and wounding a Danish citizen in Riyadh.

In November, the kingdom blamed ISIS-linked suspects for killing seven members of the minority Shiite community.

This will be interesting as they both have the same view and see that ISIS is a threat and many are misguided by the group into thinking the world is theirs and they should take it by force as well. This two have united along with the USA to fight the rebels is good as the ISIS is a big threat and may invade anywhere and need to be stopped if they do beforehand. I hope the meeting turns out to be positive and the countries do reach a agreement and also should be good to see what results we see and hope it is for the best as well.
