King Abdullah of Jordan officially invited on Wednesday Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to attend the upcoming Arab League summit in Jordan in March.

The invitation was relayed by Jordan's foreign minister Nasser Judeh, who arrived in Cairo on Wednesday to meet with President El-Sisi to discuss bilateral ties and regional developments.
The Arab League's 28th session will be the second Arab League summit attended by El-Sisi since he came to office in 2014.

The Egyptian president was represented by Prime Minister Sherif Ismail at the Arab League's 27th session in Mauritania in March 2016, which hosted only a limited number of Arab leaders.

Egypt hosted the Arab League's 2015 summit in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, where El-Sisi proposed the creation of a joint Arab military force. 

Jordan was designated as host of the Arab League’s 28th session after Yemen declined to serve as host.
