AMMAN — Prime Minister and Minister of Defence Bisher Al Khasawneh on Thursday conveyed a verbal message from His Majesty King Abdullah to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.

The message reaffirmed “the depth of the brotherly relations” between the two countries, as well as highlighted the views on issues of mutual interests and in service of Arab issues, foremost of which is the Palestinian cause, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The Egyptian president and the premier, during the meeting, highlighted the “deep-rooted”, historical and strategic Jordanian-Egyptian ties, expressing keenness to further cooperation, notably in the economic and trade fields.

They also emphasised the necessity of bolstering the trilateral cooperation brought forth from the outcomes of the Amman-hosted tripartite summit between His Majesty King Abdullah, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi.

Talks also went over expanding the trilateral cooperation to include more Arab nations for the best interests of these countries and their peoples.

Khasawneh also stressed the importance of Sisi’s recent visit to Amman, which took place last month, highlighting the need of building on the two leaderships’ mutual visits towards achieving more cooperation and integration.

The Jordanian-Egyptian relations have “set an example” in Arab “brotherly ties” in all fields, he said, highlighting the two leaderships’ efforts in this arena. 

Sisi and Khasawneh highlighted the two countries’ “unceasing efforts” towards serving Arab issues, foremost of which is the Palestinian cause, stressing the two countries’ firm stance on the necessity of the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital on the basis of the two-state solution, to achieve a fair and comprehensive peace in the region, as well as enhance regional security and stability.

Sisi also conveyed greetings to His Majesty, expressing keenness to maintain coordination and consultation between the two countries towards enhancing Jordanian-Egyptian ties and serving issues of mutual interests, Petra reported.
