Rishi Sunak and King Abdullah II of Jordan have discussed co-operating on solar and wind power projects during talks in Downing Street.

The Middle Eastern monarch caught Downing Street off guard by arriving early on Friday, meaning he missed the customary handshake with the Prime Minister at the door of No 10.

The king told the new PM: “I’m here to say congratulations and see how we can chart a path forward with all the challenges that we have in our region.”
