    AMMAN: Jordan’s King Abdullah 2nd held talks with United States (US) army chief General Martin Dempsey on developments in the Middle East and boosting ties. Fearing the Syrian conflict could spill over into Jordan, the United States has deployed F-16 fighters and Patriot missile defences, along with about 1,000 US troops, to protect its close Arab ally. Jordan is home to more than 500,000 Syrian refugees.
