Lower house speaker receives Palestinian agriculture minister

(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, September 15 (Petra)-- Speaker of the Lower House of Parliament, Abdel Moneim Odat, stressed the importance and impacts of establishing of a Jordanian-Palestinian joint company concerned with marketing agricultural products between the two sides.
In a meeting held Wednesday with Palestinian Minister of Agriculture, Riyad Al-Atari, and attended by Agriculture Minister Khaled Hneifat, and head of the Agriculture, Water and Badia Parliamentary Committee, Mohammad Al-Alaqma, Odat said that establishing this company reflects a Jordanian political will that His Majesty King Abdullah has always expressed in supporting the Palestinian brothers in various fields.
In the meeting, Odat reiterated that Jordan, under the leadership of King Abdullah, will remain the supporter of the Palestinian brothers, pointing out that the Jordanian position remained firm despite many pressures, and the King continued to place the Palestinian cause and defending Jerusalem at the top of his priorities.
"We will remain by the brothers' side, and will remain in contact with various inter-parliamentary bodies, institutions and unions, to support our central cause so that the brothers obtain their legitimate historical rights on their national soil, foremost of which is the right to establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital," Odat said in the meeting.
The Palestinian Agriculture Minister, in turn, said that Jordan's stances, led by King Abdullah, constituted a real and uninterrupted support for strengthening the steadfastness of the Palestinians, stressing that the Hashemite custodianship over Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem was the main reason for protecting the holy city and supporting the steadfastness of its people.
