CAIRO -- Jordan's King Abdullah has met with Egypt's new leaders in the first visit by a head of state to Cairo since the popularly-backed military coup.
A statement Saturday from Egypt's presidency said the king voiced his support for the "national choices" made by Egyptians.
The Jordanian leader met with interim President Adly Mansour. The meeting was also attended by a number of high-level officials, including the country's army chief Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi, interim Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei and the country's new prime minister.
The king's visit to Cairo lasted only a few hours.
Jordan's government had been concerned with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt after Islamist Mohammed Morsi won presidential elections last year. The Jordanian offshoot of Egypt's Brotherhood has driven street protests against the government in Amman.
