Washington, D.C. – Today, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) hosted a bipartisan meeting with His Majesty King Abdullah II ibn Al-Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to discuss the fight against ISIS.

Following the meeting, Chairman Royce issued this statement: “ISIS is waging war around the globe, from Turkey and Paris to San Bernardino.  These brutal terrorists are not contained.  

“As Jordan, a key partner for peace and security in the region, fights on the frontlines against these jihadists, it is important they have U.S. support.  As Chairman, I remain committed to strengthening the U.S.-Jordan relationship as our two nations work together to address the threats posed by Iran, Syria and ISIS.”
