By Jennifer Lipman, June 16, 2012

Representatives of the British Jewish community met the King of Jordan on Friday to discuss the development of the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

The meeting, hosted by JLC chair of trustees Mick Davis, was also attended by senior figures from the Board of Deputies.

King Abdullah spoke of Jordan’s ongoing dedication to encouraging dialogue between the Israelis and the Palestinians, as well as the progress of efforts to promote economic and social development in the Middle East.

"It was an honour and a privilege to have hosted this unique occasion which will now form the basis of an on-going relationship between His Majesty and our community," said Mr Davis.

"We were all hugely impressed with the time and commitment His Majesty continues to devote to furthering peace in the Middle East."
