AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Monday discussed with President of Guinea Alpha Condé bilateral relations between the two countries and international and regional developments, a Royal Court statement said.

Speaking at an expanded meeting held after bilateral talks, King Abdullah welcomed President Condé, noting that his visit marks an opportunity to strengthen relations between Jordan and Guinea.

“In our brief talks, we realised how much we have in common and what we could do to strengthen our relationship,” His Majesty said.

Noting current challenges, the King said that whether it is Daesh, Al Shabaab, or Boko Haram, the threat is a global one, which requires joint action to counter it.

His Majesty highlighted potential opportunities to advance cooperation between Jordan and Guinea in economic, trade, military, and security areas, voicing hope that President Condé’s visit will be the start of many visits between the two nations.

For his part, the president thanked His Majesty and the Jordanian people for the invitation and the warm reception.

He said he was delighted with what he saw during his visit to King Hussein Medical City and King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Centre, and congratulated Jordan on these achievements.

President Condé said that he met on Sunday with a number of businesspeople and discussed means to enhance trade and investment cooperation, adding that his country was interested in having a Jordanian embassy to facilitate cooperation, and serve as Jordan’s gateway to Guinea and West Africa.

Condé said that the two sides also discussed the prospect of setting up a joint ministerial committee to meet and decide on domains of cooperation.

The panel would be concerned with economic affairs, and it will handle agreements related to investment and economic cooperation between the two countries.

The president added that he welcomes Jordanian businesspeople to prepare for a Jordanian-Guinean business forum soon.

King Abdullah and Condé, who chairs the African Union, also discussed the Arab-African relations and how to boost them.
