The ministers discussed the achievements of ministerial teams in the three countries, stressing the need to follow up on target projects and expedite their implementation in order to maximise benefit, develop economic potential and achieve strategic integration among the three countries, in a way that enhances joint Arab action and achieves the aspirations of people towards progress and prosperity.

The Jordanin minister stressed the Kingdom's continued support for Iraq, its security and stability which are integral parts of the security and stability of the region, highlighting Jordan’s support for Iraq’s reconstruction efforts. 

The ministers highlighted the importance of continuing consultation and coordination among the three countries within the framework of the tripartite cooperation, aiming to resolve regional crises and promote joint Arab action.

In addition, Safadi participated in the ministerial meeting of the Alliance for Pluralism, co-hosted by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, on the sidelines of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, to discuss ways to address common challenges facing the international community. 

Safadi focused on international efforts exerted to confront the pandemic, the promotion of human rights and efforts to combat climate change and protect biodiversity.

He emphasised the need for multilateral action, reiterating the Kingdom's commitment to work with all partners to confront common challenges, pointing out that His Majesty King Abdullah, in his speech at the 76th session of the General Assembly, affirmed the necessity of joint action, coordination and organisation to bring about positive global changes.
