King Abdullah II of Jordan held talks with Qatar Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in Amman on Sunday, discussing the strong ties between the two countries and means to advance cooperation, in addition to the latest regional developments.
The two leaders voiced their keenness to bolster ties across all sectors, especially economic and investment-related fields, according to a Royal Court statement.
The discussions also covered the importance of activating the Jordanian-Qatari higher committee and capitalizing on promising opportunities to advance mutual interests.
Talks also focused on regional developments, mainly the Palestinian cause and the need to support the Palestinians as they seek their just and legitimate rights to establish their independent and viable state with East Jerusalem as its capital, based on the two-state solution, international law and relevant UN resolutions.
In 2018, Qatar pledged to provide 10,000 jobs for Jordanians in several sectors. It also pledged to invest 500 million U.S. dollars in several sectors and projects in Jordan.
