AMMAN —AlGhad— His Majesty King Abdullah II and visiting Hungarian President Janos Ader met earlier today, Monday, at the Husseiniya Palace in Amman, and held talks on strengthening bilateral ties and current developments in the regional and around the world.

His Majesty welcomed the Hungarian president’s visit, and stressed that political and security ties are progressively developing between the two countries.

King Abdullah also noted that there is a major opportunity to advance economic ties between Jordan and Hungary, as well as in the fields of education cooperation.

The discussions also touched on enhancing cooperation in the agricultural, engineering and medical services aspects, among other fields.

For his part, the Hungarian president voiced his keenness to strengthen relations with Jordan to serve the interests of both countries. He also extended an invitation to His Majesty to visit Hungary.

Mr Ader also praised efforts exerted by Jordan to provide services to the refugees as well as the Kingdom's endeavours towards combating terrorism and achieving peace.

He highlighted Jordan’s role in the effort to achieve peace and stability in the Middle East.

In the talks which continued over a launch banquet, the discussions also focused on cooperation between the two countries in the agriculture, water and higher education fields.

His Majesty and the Hungarian president also reviewed the increasing burden shouldered by Jordan as a result of hosting Syrian refugees.

Both leaders urged the international community to meet its obligations toward refugees' host countries, mainly Jordan, to enable them to continue their humanitarian and relief services to the refugees.

Talks also dealt with the peace process and efforts to re-launch negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis on the basis of the two-state solution.

His Majesty said that the absence of a just and permanent solution to the Palestinian issue will be used by extremists as a means to feed their terrorist agenda and will also undermine efforts to bring about security and stability in the region.

Earlier, an official welcoming ceremony was held for the Hungarian president and his wife upon their arrival at the Husseiniya Palace, where they were received by His Majesty King Abdullah.

The King and the Hungarian president reviewed a guard of honour as a military band played the national anthem of both countries.
