They will also discuss the efforts that aim to both resolve crises and support peace and security across the region.

The Foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan and Iraq have held a series of periodic meetings since 2019.

The last meeting they held was in late October on the sidelines of the Arab summit in Algeria.
