(L-R) King Abdullah II of Jordan, Iraqi President Barham Salih and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi attend a meeting at the Republican Palace on the sidelines of the Iraqi-Egyptian-Jordanian tripartite summit, Baghdad, Iraq, June 27, 2021.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Jordanian King Abdullah met in Baghdad June 27, the fourth such meeting among Iraqi, Egyptian and Jordanian leaders in less than three years. The trip had been postponed twice due to a train crash in Egypt and political crisis in Jordan.

The three leaders had previously met in Amman in August 2020, and former Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi also met with the other two leaders twice, in Cairo and New York.
