AMMAN — Senate President Faisal Al Fayez and British Ambassador to Jordan Philip Hall discussed the aspects of Jordanian-British relations and the current regional situation.
Fayez underscored the strategic importance of the bilateral relations between Jordan and the United Kingdom, calling for the enhancement of these ties, particularly in the economic and investment sectors, to mutually benefit both countries, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
The senate president also provided an overview of the comprehensive reform initiated by the Kingdom, reflecting the visions and aspirations of His Majesty King Abdullah, emphasising that Jordan’s strategic partnership with the United Kingdom necessitates increased economic support and British investments to empower Jordan tackling the challenges arising from regional conflicts and bolster Jordan’s extensive reform plans.
Regarding the ongoing Israeli aggression against the people in Gaza and the occupied West Bank, Fayez highlighted the relentless efforts of the King to halt this brutal assault and ensure the delivery of adequate humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip.
The senate president also urged the United Kingdom and the international community to back His Majesty’s endeavours to cease regional conflicts, halt Israeli aggression, and find a fair and comprehensive resolution to the Palestinian issue, in accordance with international legitimacy and the two-state solution, leading to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
Fayez added, “Jordan will not serve as a battleground for any entity and will resist any attempts to breach its national sovereignty.”
The British ambassador commended the strategic partnership with Jordan, describing it as crucial to foster peace and stability in the region. 
He also affirmed his country’s commitment to strengthening bilateral relations with Jordan and providing increased economic support to the Kingdom. He also expressed appreciation for the significant role played by the King in ensuring regional security and stability.
