AMMAN —AlGhad— His Majesty King Abdullah II received EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini in Amman earlier today, Saturday, to discuss Jordan’s strategic partnership with the European Union and the region’s pressing affairs.

The meeting addressed the reforms and economic programs carried out by Jordan to overcome economic and financial challenges arising from regional crises.

Meanwhile, His Majesty and Chief Mogherini discussed the Palestinian issue and stressed on the need to arrive at a just and comprehensive solution for the conflict.

Peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis based on the two-state solution, is the highlight of the discussions on the Palestinian Cause. The establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital is a crucial part of the solution.

The King and Mogherini underlined the importance of finding political solutions to crises in the Middle East region, especially the Syrian crisis. His Majesty emphasized the need to maintain the de-escalation zone in south-west Syria, announced last year after following a tripartite agreement between Jordan, the United States and Russia.

Mogherini expressed the European Union's appreciation for Jordan's efforts under the leadership of His Majesty to achieve security, peace and stability in the region.

She also stressed that the international community must shoulder its responsibilities to support the Kingdom to overcome the challenges.

The meeting was attended by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs, the Advisor to His Majesty the King, the Director of His Majesty's Office and the Ambassador of the European Union in Amman.
