Boehner visits Jordan in first stop of Mideast tour

Written By kom nampuldu on Selasa, 31 Maret 2015 | 18.18

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner began a Holy Land victory tour Monday, with plans to meet this week with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Boehner's trip comes just weeks after Netanyahu scored a surprise electoral victory in Israel's elections — an achievement that came shortly after he attacked the US administration's nuclear negotiations with Iran at a joint session of Congress.

Boehner visited Jordan with eight other Republican House members on the first stop of his tour Monday. He met with King Abdullah for lunch at the Beit al-Urdun Palace, with plans to head to Jerusalem later.

The excursion to Israel comes as Secretary of State John Kerry and other diplomats try to hammer out a nuclear deal with Iran before Tuesday's agreed-upon deadline.

Boehner's office wouldn't reveal specific details about his itinerary, citing security.

Those lawmakers who got to tag along are close to Boehner. Among them are Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) and House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).

Asked about the trip, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf expressed support for the concept of so-called congressional delegations, saying it was "important" for members to get outside of the United States.
