President Abdel Fattah El Sisi arrived in the Jordanian capital Amman for summit talks with King Abdullah II of Jordan that fall within the framework of constant bilateral consultations and coordination. The Jordanian monarch welcomed the Egyptian president upon his arrival at the airport. Sisi was accorded a red carpet reception ahead of the beginning of talks between the two sides which are expected to cover means of fostering Egyptian-Jordanian relations and the latest regional developments including conditions in the Palestinian lands and efforts exerted to reach a political settlement to outstanding problems and restore security and stability across the region.
President Sisi and King Abdullah II called on for the resumption of Palestinian-Israeli negotiations based on the two-state solution and the Arab Peace Initiative. The resumption of talks should aim at reaching a just and comprehensive settlement to the Palestinian problem that would protect the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to establish an independent state on the June 4, 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, the two leaders said at a session of talks. The two sides discussed ways of boosting bilateral ties in the economic, trade, investment, pharmaceutical, transportation and energy fields as well as the export of natural gas from Egypt to Jordan.
King Abdullah hosted a luncheon in honor of Sisi and his accompanying delegation following their session of talks.
