Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi arrived in Amman on Monday in an official visit upon an invitation by King Abdullah II of Jordan to discuss bilateral relations and regional issues.
King Abdullah II received El-Sisi at Marka airport, according to the Royal Hashemite Court.
According to the Egyptian presidency, the two leaders will discuss ways to boost Egyptian-Jordanian relations, in addition to exchanging views on regional issues in light of the keeness of both sides on regular coordination to unify efforts to protect Arab national security.
The visit comes less than a week after Cairo hosted a quartet meeting attended by the foreign ministers of France, Germany, and Jordan to discuss coordination and consultation on means to push forward with the Middle East peace process between the Palestinians and Israelis.
In August, El-Sisi attended a tripartite summit in Amman between Egypt, Jordan, and Iraq to discuss partnership prospects between the three countries, as well as regional issues, including the Palestinian cause.
