AMMAN — Senate President Faisal Fayez on Thursday delivered a letter from His Majesty King Abdullah to Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, expressing Jordan’s keenness to continue coordination and consultation between both countries on issues of mutual Arab interest.
In the letter, His Majesty voiced his pride in the “brotherly and historical” ties between the two countries and their peoples, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
The King referred to the unstable circumstances currently facing the Arab world, which requires cooperation to preserve its interests and serve its just causes.
He also praised King Salman’s efforts in realising progress and prosperity for the Saudi people, as well as the efforts he exerts in supporting Arab and Islamic solidarity.
King Abdullah expressed the Kingdom’s gratitude to King Salman’s supportive stances towards Jordan, wishing him continued good health, and the Saudi people further progress and prosperity.
During his meeting with Fayez, the Saudi King expressed keenness to enhance bilateral relations in all fields to serve the two countries’ mutual interests.
The Saudi monarch commended King Abdullah’s role in developing and boosting bilateral ties in all fields, adding that “Jordan’s security and stability is Saudi Arabia’s security and stability”.
Fayez highlighted the “deep-rooted brotherly and historical relations” between Amman and Riyadh, noting that these ties are based on mutual respect, in a way that best serves the two countries’ interests and the Arab world’s causes.
Fayez also expressed the Kingdom’s appreciation for Saudi Arabia’s support for Hashemite Custodianship over Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.
The Senate president said that Jordan considers the Gulf countries its strategic partners, and therefore denounces any attempt to undermine the unity and security of these states or interfere in their affairs.
He noted that Jordan has preserved its internal front and social fabric, despite political conflicts in the region, stressing that the Kingdom is now strong at the political and security levels.
