Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Jordan and Egypt Sunday discussed enforcing signed security agreements and joint coordination to counter terrorism during talks held in Cairo.

Interior Minister Salameh Hammad said at a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart Majdi Abdel Ghafar that his visit was to benefit from the Egyptian expertise in security and anti-terrorism fields, as well as boosting communication channels and the exchange of data on the movement and designs of terrorists and their funding sources.

Jordan, Hammad said, looks forward to enacting anti-drugs and civil protection security agreements, and backing these with joint communication mechanisms and exchanging visits by security officials.

He said Jordan wanted to send police trainees to join advanced courses at Egypt's police academy.

The two ministers discussed the overall regional security situation and its impact on the spread of terrorism and extremist ideology as well as devising new anti-terrorism methods, largely based on security initiative and preemption, to dismantle terror cells.
