AMMONNEWS - His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday held talks with visiting Pakistani Senate President, Mian Rida Rabbani, on bilateral ties and the latest Mideast developments.

The King, during the meeting attended by Senate President Faisal al-Fayez, voiced Jordan's keenness to further boost cooperation levels with Islamabad in the various fields, with eye to economic, defense, parliamentary and legislature domains.

Discussions also touched on circumstances in the Middle East, particularly the Palestinian cause, Jerusalem, and current efforts aimed to find a political solution to the region's crises, along with diverse Mideast and global maneuvers seeking to fight terrorism within a holistic strategy.

The Pakistani official, on his part, said the Palestinian cause and the issue of Jerusalem are "definitely pivotal and sensitive" and any measures attempting to tamper with the status quo in this holy city will undermine peace efforts and will have negative repercussions on the region and the world.

Chief of the Royal Court, Fayez Tarawneh, member of the Jordanian-Pakistani Brotherhood Committee at the Parliament Senator, Ghazi Tayeb, and the Pakistani delegation attended the meeting.
