AMMONNEWS - His Majesty King Abdullah, accompanied by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, received on Monday Prime Minister of Kuwait Sheikh Jaber Al Mubarak Al Hamad Al Sabah, who is heading a high-level delegation of ministers, businesspeople, and private sector leaders on a visit to Jordan.

Sheikh Jaber delivered a letter to King Abdullah from Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, which focused on the historical ties between Jordan and Kuwait, as well as keenness to advance them further.

His Majesty asked Sheikh Jaber to convey his greetings to Sheikh Sabah, expressing his best wishes to the people and leadership of Kuwait.

The King noted the brotherly ties between the two countries, thanking Kuwait for standing by Jordan.

During a bilateral meeting at Al Husseiniya Palace, which was followed by an expanded one attended by Prime Minister Omar Razzaz and senior officials on both sides, discussions covered opportunities for economic, investment, trade, and military cooperation.

His Majesty stressed the importance of the fourth round of meetings for the joint Jordanian-Kuwaiti higher committee, held in Amman on Monday, noting the agreements resulting from it.

The need to maintain coordination and consultation between Jordan and Kuwait over issues of mutual concern was also stressed.

In addition, discussions covered the international conference hosted by the United Kingdom’s government in cooperation with the Jordanian government in London later this month.

The King said he looks forward to Kuwait’s participation in the conference, as Sheikh Jaber noted that his country will send a high-level delegation to the event and invite the Kuwaiti private sector to participate.

Moreover, the meeting covered the latest regional developments and the need to reach political solutions to crises in the region.

The importance of stepping up efforts to launch Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations based on the two-state solution and the Arab Peace Initiative was also stressed, leading to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 4 June 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The two sides also called for bolstering joint Arab action in service of just Arab causes.

His Majesty commended Kuwait’s efforts to support Arab causes.

For his part, Sheikh Jaber lauded Jordan’s role, led by the King, in seeking security and stability in the region, affirming Kuwait’s support for Jordan and its commitment to advancing cooperation.
