AMMAN — Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Monday met with his Polish counterpart Witold Waszczykowski over bilateral ties and the latest developments in the region.

Both officials also discussed issues related to terrorism and extremism threatening world security and peace, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

They highlighted the "deep-rooted" relations between the two countries at the bilateral level and within the framework of the EU, with Judeh voicing the Kingdom's appreciation of Poland's support to Jordan in its endeavours towards achieving peace and stability in the region. 

Judeh and Waszczykowski highlighted the importance of enhancing economic and investment cooperation and delegation exchange at all levels, referring to the Jordanian-EU agreement on simplified rules of origin that came into effect recently.

Both ministers reiterated the significance of joining international efforts to fight terrorism and extremism that threaten the entire world. Judeh stressed in this regard that Jordan is playing a key role in the war against terrorism.

They also reiterated the importance of reviving the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations on the basis of the two-state solution, to eventually lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the pre-1967 lines, and with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Both sides also went over the conditions of Syrian refugees in Jordan and the burdens the Kingdom is shouldering to host and serve refugees, stressing the responsibility of the world to help Jordan carry on with this humanitarian mission, Petra added.

The deputy prime minister highlighted in this regard the importance of reaching a political solution to the Syrian crisis that ensures the participation of all the components of the Syrian society  in the process, describing the envisioned outcome as a “humanitarian” solution that guarantees the return of Syrians to their homeland. 

 

For his part, Waszczykowski expressed his country’s appreciation of and support to Jordan’s intensified efforts to achieve peace and security in the region, stressing Poland’s keenness to sustain consultation and coordination with Jordan concerning all regional issues and challenges.
