O'Malley To Head For Middle East

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is scheduled to make a trade mission to Israel and Jordan.
    
O'Malley's office announced the trip on Wednesday. The governor is set to leave Saturday.
    
It's O'Malley's third trip to Israel. He went once when he was mayor of Baltimore and in 2008 as governor. It's the governor's first trip to Jordan, where he will speak to business and government leaders at a dinner reception.
    
The governor is going with a delegation of more than 30 business, civil and higher education leaders. They are scheduled to arrive in Jerusalem on Sunday. It will then travel first to Amman, Jordan, and return to Israel for the rest of the trip.
    
O'Malley had been scheduled to go in November, but the trip was canceled amid Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
