Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi told King Abdullah II of Jordan during a meeting in Washington on Tuesday that Egypt is keen on coordinating and consulting with Jordan periodically on different issues.

Egyptian presidency spokesperson Alaa Youssef said that during the meeting, the El-Sisi congratulated King Abdullah II over the success of the latest Arab Summit, which was held late last month in Jordan.

Both leaders are on official visits to the US to meet American President Donald Trump and other US officials.

El-Sisi expressed his keenness to follow up on the implementation of decisions related to joint Arab cooperation that were adopted at the summit. 

El-Sisi attended the Arab Summit’s 28th session in the Jordanian Dead Sea resort of Sweimeh, delivering an opening address on several regional conflicts and means of bringing Arabs together.

King Abdullah II praised El-Sisi’s participation in the summit, expressing Jordan’s wish for continued consultations with Egypt on all regional issues in order to reach political resolutions for ongoing crises in the region.

The meeting also witnessed an exchange of viewpoints over different regional developments, as well as promoting the peace process between the Palestinian and Israeli parties.

Cairo and Amman have been coordinating to resolve several conflicts in the region, particularly the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
