Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is set to receive Jordan's King Abdullah II on Wednesday at noon as part of the king's one-day visit to Cairo.

In an official statement, Egyptian presidency spokesman Bassam Rady described King Abdullah as a "dear guest of Egypt."

Rady did not include reasons for the Jordanian monarch's visit in the statement.

The visit comes nearly a week after the two leaders discussed in a phone call efforts to reach political settlements in the region as well as latest regional developments, chief among them the current situation in Palestine.

Last week, Israeli occupying forces killed at least 61 and injured thousands of Palestinians protesting the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem, making 14 May the deadliest day for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza war.
