AMMONNEWS - Azerbaijan's Ambassador Rasim Rzayev lauded Jordan's "ideal" response to the COVID-19 crisis and the decisions taken to deal with the pandemic under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah II.

"We in Azerbaijan look with pride and admiration at the historic Hashemite leadership, which has led Jordan to civilizational achievements in all walks of life despite regional challenges," the envoy said, commending the Kingdom's foreign policy, which is based on recognition of rights and respect of the sovereignty of states.

In a press conference on the occasion of his country's National Day, Rzayev stated that Jordanian-Azeri relations are steadily growing, thanks to the friendship between their leaders and common cultural and religious relations and understanding on various local and international issues.

He said that the joint governmental committee will hold its fourth meeting in Baku to discuss removing trade barriers, promoting investments and reactivating 40 agreements signed by the two countries.

The envoy said that the two sides seek to encourage Azeri firms to invest in oil and gas exploration in Jordan, and also noted that the number of Jordanian tourists to Azerbaijan has multiplied in the last three years.

He also stressed the importance of His Majesty King Abdullah's visit to Azerbaijan late last year to enhance bilateral cooperation and strengthen relations and coordination on current international issues.

The visit, he pointed out, focused on expanding cooperation in the economic, investment, tourism and defence industry fields and increasing bilateral trade, as well as building on signed agreements.
