AMMAN — Deputising for His Majesty King Abdullah, Royal Court Chief Fayez Tarawneh met with Uruguayan Foreign Minister Luis Almagro to discuss bilateral ties. 

At the meeting, which covered several regional and international issues of mutual concern, Tarawneh underlined Jordan’s commitment to boosting cooperation between Jordan and South American countries at all levels, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

Tarawneh highlighted the Kingdom’s stances towards regional issues, particularly those relating to peace efforts between the Palestinians and the Israelis based on the two-state solution, as well as the Syrian crisis. 

The Royal Court chief also outlined the challenges Jordan now faces as a result of hosting a large number of Syrian refugees and the pressure this imposes on its already scarce resources. 

For his part, Almagro stressed his country’s keenness to develop cooperation with the Kingdom. 

Also on Thursday, Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh met with his Uruguayan counterpart to discuss the latest developments in the Middle East. 

In addition, talks covered the possibility of benefiting from Uruguay’s experience in the field of renewable energy, especially since 50 per cent of its energy derives from renewable resources. 

The two sides agreed to increase the trade volume, establish mutual benefits from investment opportunities available in both countries and promote Jordan as a destination for medical and religious tourism in the South American country, according to Petra.
