The White House has announced the dates for President Barack Obama's White House meetings with the leaders of Israeli, Egypt and the Palestinian Authority.
Spokesman Robert Gibbs says the president looks forward to welcoming key partners in the effort to achieve a comprehensive peace in the Middle East.
"What we are talking about is not Israelis and Palestinians sitting at the table, but Israelis sitting with Palestinians, Israelis sitting with Syrians, Israelis sitting with Lebanese," said the king.
While Palestinians seek a state in their long-running conflict with Israel, Syria wants the return of the Golan Heights, seized by Israel in a 1967 war. Israel and Lebanon's Hezbollah fought a war in 2006.
"I think we're going to have to do a lot of shuttle diplomacy, get people to a table in the next couple of months to get a solution," Abdullah said.
