Amman — US Vice President Mike Pence is defending President Donald Trump's move to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel, a decision that has touched off uneasiness among Arab nations on his first tour of the region.

Pence on Sunday meets with Jordan's King Abdullah II for discussions that are expected to include the Trump administration's December decision on Israel's capital and plans to shift the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The vice president said after meeting on Saturday with Egypt's President Fatah Abdel el-Sissi that he emphasised the US's commitment to the peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinian Authority.
