AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah held talks with Qatar Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, at Al Husseiniya Palace on Sunday, covering the strong ties between the two countries and means to advance cooperation, in addition to the latest regional developments.

The King and Sheikh Tamim reaffirmed the deep-rooted, brotherly ties between the two countries, and keenness to bolster them across all sectors, especially economic and investment-related fields, according to a Royal Court statement. 

Discussions at the bilateral talks — which were followed by expanded talks attended by HRH Prince Ali, the escort of honour, and senior officials on both sides — covered the importance of activating the Jordanian-Qatari higher committee and capitalising on promising opportunities to advance mutual interests, the statement said. 

Talks also covered regional developments, foremost of which is the Palestinian cause and the need to support the Palestinians as they seek their just and legitimate rights to establish their independent and viable state on the June 4, 1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital, based on the two-state solution, and international law and relevant UN resolutions, according to the statement.

The two leaders also discussed efforts to reach political solutions to regional crises that would restore security and stability to the region and its peoples.

Earlier on Sunday, an official welcoming ceremony is held for Sheikh Tamim at Queen Alia International Airport attended by Royal Family members and senior officials.
