AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday received a letter from Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi expressing Egypt’s appreciation for the King’s efforts in serving Arab causes, first and foremost the Palestinian cause and protecting Islamic sites in Jerusalem.

In the letter, Sisi lauded Jordan’s role in reaching political solutions for the crises witnessed in several Arab countries in a manner that maintains their unity and safeguards the accomplishments of their people.

The Egyptian president also commended the Kingdom’s role in hosting refugees, according to a Royal Court statement.

Sisi emphasised the distinguished ties between both nations and their mutual commitment to preserving the interests of the Arab and the Islamic world.

He also expressed appreciation for His Majesty’s support for Egypt under different circumstances, noting that this boosts the morale of the nation and its people.


Jordan has been placing pressure on Israel to maintain the status quo in Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv has declared its commitment to this, while agreeing to a Jordanian proposal to provide 24-hour video coverage of all sites at Al Haram Al Sharif.
