AMMAN — HRH Prince Feisal, president of the Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC), on Wednesday received Prince Abdul Aziz Ben Turki Al Faisal, head of the General Sports Authority and the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee.
 
The Saudi prince was accompanied by Prince Fahad Bin Jalawi, director of international relations at the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee.
 
Prince Feisal also sponsored the Generations for Peace’s 12th anniversary celebration on Wednesday.
 
Prince Feisal welcomed the Saudi prince and his accompanying delegation, affirming his pride in the work and effort being made by Saudi Arabia in developing sports in the Arab world through its adoption of various programmes.
 
Prince Feisal and the Saudi delegation discussed increasing sports cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom, in addition to exchanging expertise and the possibility of carrying out joint projects in service of the two country’s common goal, which is to reach the highest levels of achievement in sports, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.
 
Prince Abdul Aziz stressed the necessity of uniting the two kingdoms’ efforts in order to make sports an indispensible part of their vision, and to allow youth from both countries to reach their goals.
 
Earlier in the day, during the Generations for Peace’s celebration, Prince Feisal reiterated the need to connect with the media due to the importance of its role in delivering the message of peace to youth.
 
“Representatives from government institutions and funding organisations play a crucial role in our progress,” Prince Feisal stated at the ceremony. “We are here to share in the achievements that we have made through cooperation, which have contributed to our ranking as 29th of the best 500 international organisations.”
 
Generations for Peace, which Prince Feisal founded, has managed to train and guide over 11,500 volunteers across 50 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe over the past 12 years, according to Petra.
