Jordan- Tajik president meets Senate president


(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, Dec. 11 (Petra)-President of Tajikistan, Imam Ali Rahman, on Monday met Senate President, Faisal al-Fayez, on ways to foster "longstanding" bilateral ties.

Talks during the meeting touched on the latest Mideast developments and the diverse repercussions of the U.S. administration's decision to relocate its country's embassy to the occupied Jerusalem.

The Tajik leader said the two countries' relations are based on mutual interest and they exhibit further sustained progress.

He underlined the rigorous burdens encountering the Kingdom due to the recent Mideast volatilities and lauded the country's crucial role in serving the Syrian refugees and the King's efforts to resolve regional Mideast crises and to counter terrorism.

He voiced keenness to sustain coordination and cooperation with the King on regional and global issues.

Al-Fayez on his part, said Jordan is keen to bolster ties with Tajikistan in the various fields.

The Kingdom, Al-Fayez added, is battling economic challenges due to the hosting of Syrian refugees and the Mideast woes, which impede continuity of assuming its humanitarian role in serving these regional newcomers.

He urged all parties to launch diverse investments, with eye to the agricultural, water, renewable energy, public transport, and tourism sectors due to the Kingdom's resilient and lucrative investment ambience.

He highlighted Amman's key role to achieve peace and stability in the Middle East.

" Leaving the Palestinian and Syrian crises unresolved will spark further violence that will impact the entire world," he added.

He deemed the US step to move its country's embassy to Jerusalem a violation to relevant international legitimacy resolutions on this holy city.

The King warned of the grave ramifications of this U.S. step on the Mideast stability, he said , and added all unilateral measures are rejected until Palestinians establish their sovereign state with Jerusalem as its capital.
