AMMAN — Lower House Speaker Atef Tarawneh on Monday received Iranian Chargé-d’affaires to Jordan Ahmed Husseini and discussed bilateral relations and regional developments.

Tarawneh reiterated the centrality of the Palestinian question, highlighting Jordan’s stance on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict that calls for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Tarawneh also reaffirmed Jordan’s call for a comprehensive political solution to the ongoing crisis in Syria that can safeguard its territorial unity and end the suffering of its people.

Husseini delivered two letters from Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani inviting Tarawneh and a Jordanian parliamentary delegation to the ninth Parliament Union Conference of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation countries, which will be held in Tehran in mid February.
