Jordan, Saudi kings in talks as they battle IS


RIYADH: Jordan’s King Abdullah II met his Saudi counterpart in Riyadh on Sunday for talks as both nations participate in a US-led bombing campaign against Islamic State (IS) group extremists in Syria. The official Saudi Press Agency said King Abdullah received the Jordanian monarch at his palace. Since September both kingdoms, along with Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, have been taking part in American-led air strikes against the IS jihadists in Syria. Jordan’s king warned this month that the fight against IS is a “third world war.”
