His Majesty King Abdullah II received a United States Congressional delegation headed by Senator Chris Coons.

His Majesty urged the need to step up efforts to reach a lasting truce that leads to a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

His Majesty also warned against suspending international funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), which is a lifeline for nearly 2 millions Palestinians in the Gaza Strip who are facing the threat of starvation, especially as the month of Ramadan nears.
