Jordanian King Abdullah II held talks Wednesday with U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) Gen. John Allen.

Abdullah reiterated Jordan's support for the U.S.-led coalition against organizations that threaten regional and global security, according to a statement issued by the Jordanian Royal Court.

The Jordanian monarch also called for a unified international stance to deal with the various threats to global peace and security.

Gen. Allen, for his part, underlined the importance of Jordan's role in "addressing the difficult challenges facing the region."

The meeting came shortly before Allen left Amman for Cairo, where he is scheduled to hold talks with senior Egyptian officials on means of broadening the anti-ISIL coalition. 

Allen, a former top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, was appointed by President Barrack Obama last month to coordinate international efforts against the militant group in Iraq and Syria.
