AMMAN — Jordan and Bahrain on Monday reaffirmed the need to boost bilateral ties, voicing concern over the ongoing bloodshed in Syria.
His Majesty King Abdullah yesterday met with Bahrain’s King Hamad Bin Issa Al Khalifa and discussed bilateral relations and the latest developments in Syria, a Royal Court statement said.
The two leaders highlighted the “deep ties” between their countries and agreed on enhancing them to serve the best interests of Jordan and Bahrain.
They also expressed concern over the situation in Syria, as the fighting rages on with no political solution available so far to end the crisis and maintain Syria’s unity and sovereignty.
