Amman, Oct. 4 (Petra) -- German Ambassador to Jordan Bernhard Kampmann said that the next tranche of German development assistance to Jordan for the coming two years will be announced at high-level government negotiations on development cooperation, to be held in Amman from 5-6 October.
The envoy made his remarks during a ceremony at the German embassy in Amman Monday evening celebrating German Unity Day, and highlighted that his country established diplomatic relations with Jordan in 1953 and is the second biggest bilateral development and humanitarian donor to the Kingdom.
In his speech held in the presence of Ayman Al-Mufleh, Minister of Social Development, and 350 guests from politics, business and culture, Kampmann praised the close and trustful collaboration with Jordan in addressing multilateral and regional challenges, such as the Middle East Peace Process, the Syrian refugee crisis and the impact of climate change on Jordan's scarce water resources, as well as the repercussions of the Russian-Ukrainian war.
Reflecting on the strength and vibrancy of the German-Jordanian relations and the joint commitment to the rules-based order, the ambassador expressed his hope that bilateral relations between Germany and Jordan would continue to grow at this moment of epochal transformation.
He also indicated that the Russian war against Ukraine 'has shown how fragile peace between nations continues to be,', continuing 'Now, 32 years after the German reunification, we find ourselves at another historical turning point.'
