Washington, Jan 8, 2018 (AFP)

US Vice President Mike Pence will travel late next week to the Middle East to meet the leaders of Egypt, Jordan and Israel, moving ahead with a trip delayed amid anger over Washington’s policy shift on Jerusalem, a US official said Monday.
Pence will arrive January 20 in Egypt for a meeting with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, heading the following day to Jordan for meetings with King Abdullah.
He will spend January 22-23 in Israel where he will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin and deliver a speech to the Knesset.
