WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- U.S. Vice President Joe Biden hosted Jordan's King Abdullah II in Washington Wednesday to discuss their countries' ongoing efforts to resolve Syria's civil war.

Biden and Abdullah agreed during a meeting at the vice president's residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory more must be done to support the millions of refugees the nearly three-year war has generated and the communities in Jordan and elsewhere hosting them. The leaders also discussed the increased threat posed by violent extremism the conflict has created, the vice president's office said.

Abdullah will meet with President Barack Obama Friday in California.
