AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday received Vice President and Foreign Minister of Panama Isabel de Saint Malo de Alvarado at Al Husseiniya Palace and discussed means to bolster cooperation.
King Abdullah expressed Jordan’s keenness to advance cooperation with Panama at the political, economic and tourism levels, noting the importance of the recent opening of Panama’s embassy in Amman, a Royal Court statement said.
Discussions also covered regional issues, especially the Palestinian cause and Jerusalem.
His Majesty stressed the need to reach just and lasting peace based on the two-state solution that leads to an independent Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967, lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The importance of reaching a political solution in Syria that preserves its territorial integrity and the unity of its people was also stressed, according to the statement.
Discussions covered efforts to counter terrorism within a holistic approach and the need to step up international cooperation and coordination in this regard.
Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, Adviser to His Majesty and Director of the Office of His Majesty Manar Dabbas, the accompanying Panamanian delegation and Panama’s ambassador to Jordan attended the meeting.
Meanwhile, Safadi held a separate meeting with the Panamanian vice president (VP) on Wednesday, during which they discussed the means of activating cooperation in the field of economy, according to a Foreign Ministry statement. 
During the talks, the two sides signed an agreement on developing tourism cooperation and a memorandum of understanding outlining Jordanian-Panamanian political consultations.
The VP expressed her country’s support for the two-state solution, which Safadi said is the sole path to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, according to the statement.
De Saint Malo also voiced Panama’s appreciation for Jordan’s humanitarian assistance to refugees, valuing the Kingdom’s role in maintaining regional security and stability.
She and the accompanying delegation are due to participate in the upcoming World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa, scheduled to be held at the Dead Sea next week.
