The King also stressed the need to benefit from the incentives provided to investors and to enhance the economic partnership between Jordan and Kazakhstan, noting the private sector role in this regard.

King Abdullah stressed the importance of "working and cooperating together, and through the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to promote interfaith initiatives, and fight extremism by deploying and consolidating the values ??of moderation and tolerance." "Our efforts will strengthen the endeavor of the Islamic world in promoting peace and stability in the Middle East and Central Asia."
