On the sidelines of the special summit of the OIC, the Iranian and Jordanian heads of state held a brief meeting on Friday, in the first meeting between the two countries’ heads of state in 15 years.

Iran's Tasnim news agency reported the meeting between President Hassan Rouhani and Jordan's King Abdullah II in Istanbul on Friday.

In September 2003, Iran’s then president Mohammad Khatami met with King Abdullah II in Tehran, Press TV wrote.

The relocation of the US Embassy to Al-Quds has infuriated Jordan, the custodian of Muslim holy sites in the occupied city.

King Abdullah on Monday stressed that Jordan rejects and condemns “the blatant acts of aggression and violence perpetrated by Israel” against Palestinian Arabs in Gaza, the Jordan Times reported.

The King also criticized the relocation of the US Embassy in Israel to Al-Quds, warning the move would have serious repercussions on security and stability in the Middle East and will inflame the feelings of Muslims and Christians.
