Jordan's king to meet Obama, Britain's Cameron

Jordan's royal palace says King Abdullah II will hold talks with U.S. President Barack Obama next Tuesday in Washington.

A statement says the talks at the White House will focus on the uprisings that have engulfed the Mideast. His visit to Washington will be preceded by a meeting in London this Thursday with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Tuesday's statement said the resumption of Palestinian-Israeli talks will also figure high in Abdullah's discussions.

Abdullah has faced protests demanding that he loosen his absolute control over the kingdom. However, they have not demanded his removal.
