Jordan's King Abdullah hosted Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid for talks on Thursday about coordinating ways of securing calm in Jerusalem, a frequent flashpoint of Palestinian protests, Israel's Foreign Ministry said.

The visit came "ahead of the (Muslim fast month) of Ramadan and in light of reports of growing tension in Jerusalem", the ministry said in a statement. Israeli police confrontations with Palestinians during Ramadan last year helped stoke a May war in Gaza.
