CAIRO – 4 October 2020: A Jordanian, Egyptian, and Iraqi tripartite ministerial meeting began held on Sunday, to implement the outcomes of the tripartite summit that was held in Amman last August between Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, Jordanian King Abdullah II, and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, Ammon news agency reported.
The meeting was held by Egyptian Minister of Trade and Industry Nevin Jamae, Jordanian counterpart Tariq Al-Hammouri, and the Iraqi Minister of Industry and Minerals, Manhal Al-Khabaz.
Late August, the three leaders agreed on establishing a new ground road to Egypt through the Jordanian territories. It was also agreed on creating an electricity linkage and an oil pipeline to enhance the tripartite cooperation.
The first trilateral summits were held in Cairo in March 2019, while the second one convened in New York in September of the same year, on the sidelines of the current United Nations General Assembly meetings.
