Biden greeted the king warmly on arrival at the White House. The two leaders proceeded inside the residence for their discussions. They were to make statements to the news media later.
Biden spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday, and the White House said he stressed that “a military operation in Rafah should not proceed without a credible and executable plan for ensuring the safety of and support for the more than one million people sheltering there”.
Before embarking on a tour of Western capitals, Abdullah took part in an airdrop of humanitarian aid to Gaza, a move that highlighted his kingdom’s role in pushing Israel to stop restricting efforts to help fend off illness, hunger and starvation in the war-torn enclave.
The king, who has been vocal in calling for an end to Israel’s campaign, is expected to urge Biden to support an immediate ceasefire.
A senior Biden administration official told reporters on Sunday that Biden’s meeting with the king would focus on ending the war in Gaza.
