He was welcomed by the President, Sheikh Mohamed, at Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The leaders discussed increasing ties between the two countries at Qasr Al Shati Palace, where Sheikh Mohamed wished Jordan's people continued progress, development and prosperity under the king's leadership.

Opportunities for developing collaborations in political, economic, investment and developmental fields were discussed at the meeting, as well as what the future held for the relationship between the countries.

Also in attendance were Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs; Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai; and Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Tahnoun, Adviser for Special Affairs at the Ministry of Presidential Affairs.

King Abdullah was joined on his trip by Bisher Al Khasawneh, Prime Minister of Jordan; Ayman Safadi, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates; and Jaafar Hassan, director of King Abdullah's office.

King Abdullah II of Jordan and his delegation have since left the UAE.
