AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday held talks with Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi and the deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

The talks, held at Al Shati Palace in Abu Dhabi, covered the deep-rooted bilateral relations and the latest regional developments, according to a Royal Court statement.

The King and Sheikh Mohamed reaffirmed pride in the distinguished ties between Jordan and the UAE and keenness to expand cooperation across all fields, especially the economy.

Discussions also covered the importance of maintaining coordination on issues of mutual concern, in service of the two countries and peoples, as well as Arab causes, the statement said.

Discussing developments in Syria, the King reiterated Jordan’s support for efforts to safeguard Syria’s sovereignty, stability, territorial integrity, and the unity of its people.

His Majesty congratulated Sheikh Mohamed on receiving the 2021 Scholar-Statesman Award and on the UAE being selected to host the COP28 international climate conference, according to the statement.

For his part, the Abu Dhabi crown prince underscored the UAE’s keenness to enhance cooperation with Jordan, especially across economic, investment, trade, energy, and environment-related fields, in service of sustainable development in the two countries.
