Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry on Sunday delivered a message from President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to Jordan's King Abdullah that stated that widening regional conflicts and foreign interference in internal Arab affairs require strengthening methods of consultation and coordination to bolster Arab national security.

Shoukry also emphasized his government's firm policy of exerting all possible efforts to avoid further regional conflict and to reduce tensions and polarization, according to an official statement by Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid.

The King and the FM also discussed the latest political and security developments in Iraq and Syria.

The two additionally exchanged viewpoints over efforts to support the recent Palestinian national reconciliation, as well as efforts to revive peace talks between Palestine and Israel.

Prior to meeting with the King, the Egyptian FM discussed these issues in a meeting with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safady.

Shoukry is on a three-day regional tour that includes Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman to discuss various regional issues, including the ongoing situation involving Lebanon.
