AMMAN — Jordan and Saudi Arabia on Thursday underlined their advanced level of ties, especially in the medical sector.

During a meeting, Health Minister Ali Hiasat and Saudi Ambassador to Jordan Sami Al Saleh discussed means to further enhance medical cooperation.

Hiasat said the Kingdom has received a great number of Syrian refugees during the past three years, who have increased the burden on health services in the country.

He praised the Saudi efforts to help Jordan in all areas, especially the health sector.

Saleh commended the Kingdom’s health achievements and the availability of specialised hospitals, healthcare centres and qualified personnel.

The ambassador also said that Saudi patients prefer to receive their medical treatment in Jordan because of its good reputation in the field.
