Pence arrived in Israel yesterday in two-days visit. It is expected that he will hold a several meetings، especially a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Pence will also visit archaeological sites in Jerusalem.

Noteworthy، Pence had visited the Middle East for talks with the leaders of Egypt، and Jordan.

Visiting Jordan on Sunday before flying to Israel، Pence told its monarch، King Abdullah، that Washington was committed to preserving the status quo of holy sites in Jerusalem، a city sacred to Jews، Muslims and Christians.

Palestinian President، Mahmoud Abbas refused to meet Pence due to America’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital. A move that inflamed tensions between Washington and Palestine.
