AMMAN, Jordan (AP) - President Barack Obama is in Jordan for the final stop on his four-day visit to the Middle East.
Air Force One arrived in Jordan Friday afternoon after a quick flight from Israel. Obama will hold meetings with King Abdullah in the capital of Amman and visit the fabled ancient city of Petra.
The president's meetings in Jordan are expected to focus on the Syrian refugee crisis. More than 400,000 Syrians have crossed the border into neighboring Jordan to escape the civil war in their home country, crowding refugee camps and overwhelming aid agencies.
Obama will also seek to bolster Jordan's efforts to reform its government as it seeks to stave off an Arab Spring-style revolution. Jordan is an important U.S. ally in the Middle East.
