Arafat Visits Jordan

AMMAN, Jordan -- Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat met with Jordan's King Abdullah II on Monday and discussed peace negotiations with an Israeli government to be formed soon.

The talks at Amman's Raghadan Palace opened immediately after Arafat flew in for a two-day visit, during which he also was expected to meet with Jordan-based Palestinian dignitaries.

Omar Khatib, Arafat's representative in Jordan, said the talks focused on resumed negotiations with Israel under Prime Minister-elect Ehud Barak.
