King Abdullah II of Jordan on Thursday emphasized that restoring Iraq's security and stability is a fundamental element in realizing stability in the Middle East, the state run Petra news agency reported.

During a meeting with Iraqi Vice President Adel Abdul Mahdi in the Jordanian capital of Amman Thursday, Abdullah II stressed Jordan's full support to Iraq.

The Jordanian leader and Mahdi looked into the developments of the political process in Iraq as the king extended congratulations over the success of the latest Iraqi elections.

The Iraqi official, who is in Jordan as part of a regional tour, voiced his country's appreciation of Jordan's support to Iraq, stressing his country's keenness to foster ties with the Arab kingdom.

Jordan hosts about 400,000 to 450,000 Iraqis who fled their country in the aftermath of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
