Jordan's King Abdullah II abruptly cancels a meeting with President Bush in Washington, D.C, this week, amid concern over the White House's decision to endorse an Israeli proposal to retain some West Bank settlements. Jordanian officials say a meeting won't take place until the U.S. clarifies its position on the Mideast peace process. Hear NPR's Bob Edwards and NPR's Michele Kelemen.
