washington - American Vice President Mike Pence visits Israel, Jordan and Egypt from January 20 to January 23, reported the White House on Monday. The trip was originally scheduled for last month after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Pence will hold talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Jordanian King Abdullah and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the White House said in a statement. Pence, a strong proponent of Trump's decision on Jerusalem, will also visit the Western Wall of the city and give a speech in the Israeli parliament.

Trump's decision on Jerusalem and the announcement in December that the United States would begin to relocate the embassy of Tel Aviv led to rioting and protest in the region.
