(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Dead Sea, March 24(Petra)-- Under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II, Jordan will host the second Laureates and Leaders for Children Summit 2018, which will take place on March 26-27 at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre at the Dead Sea, HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, member of the steering committee said in a press conference on Saturday.

The summit will bring together Nobel laureates, global leaders and youth from around the world to inspire, collaborate and act to protect the most vulnerable children, the prince said.
