CAIRO – 18 January 2021: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi met with King Abdallah II of Jordan in Amman on Monday as they held talks on bilateral relations and regional affairs.
The king of Jordan praised Egypt's role in joint Arab work in the face of challenges and crises encountering the region. The king described the Egyptian role as leading in terms of preserving stability, and achieving growth and development on the socio-economic level.
King Abdullah expressed appreciation for Egypt's backing to his country in all matters, and for the contributions of Egyptian expats in various sectors asserting keenness on boosting bilateral relations.
In return, President Sisi valued the level of coordination between both states over matters of mutual interest.
The talks focused on trade and investment as well as security and exchange of information. Both chiefs of state congrued on continuing efforts to mobilize the international community in order to reach settlements for political crises experienced by certain Arab countries, and combat terrorism and extremism. The goal is maintaining security, stability, territorial integrity, and property of the peoples of such states.
President Sisi and King Abdullah II exchanged views on the trilateral cooperation mechanism with Iraq agreeing to carry on preparations to accomplish developmental projects among the three states.
With regard to the Palestinian Cause's peace process and negotiations, President Sisi asserted Egypt's backing to the cause as it constitutes a foundation of Egyptian politics. The president stressed that the Palestinian people must recover its legitimate rights and establish its own states in accordance with international legitimacy.
King Abdullah II praised the Egyptian role on that front in parallel with the role Egypt is playing to reinstate peace and improve humanitarian, living, and economic conditions in Gaza Strip. That is through achieving reconciliation and political congruence among Palestinian factions.
