On arrival, Merkel was received by the Mayor of Amman, the Jordanian Ambassador to Germany, the German Ambassador to Amman, the Governor of Amman as well as a number of civilian and military officials.

A meeting between His Majesty King Abdullah II and Merkel is expected later today, after she visits the German Jordanian University to meet with students, to discuss regional developments and bilateral relations.

Merkel is scheduled to wrap up her one-day official visit in Amman and travel tomorrow to neighbouring Lebanon in order to meet with Prime Minister-designate Saad Al Hariri.
