Jordanian Foreign Minister Abdel-Ilah Khatib is to make a brief visit to Gaza Saturday for talks with Palestinian president Yasser Arafat ahead of next week's summit in the United States, an official Jordanian source said.
Khatib will give Arafat a message from King Abdullah, which "reflects the continuing Jordanian support for the Palestinian positions" on the peace process, the source said.
Khatib met the Palestinian second-in-command, Mahmud Abbas, in Amman Friday to discuss the summit, which starts in Camp David on Tuesday between Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, and US President Bill Clinton.
