AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Thursday received a letter from Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara on the development of bilateral ties and increase of coordination, which was delivered by visiting Ivory Coast Foreign Minister Marcel Amon Tanoh during his meeting with Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Thursday.

Safadi and Tanoh went over steps to be taken to enhance economic and trade cooperation between both countries which intensified their contacts in recent years to widen their scopes of cooperation, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The ministers also discussed means to develop cooperation in the defence and security fields.

The two sides agreed to put certain mechanisms in place to boost cooperation in the pharmaceutical, agricultural and trade sectors and to define the agreements needed ensure reaching such momentum. Both ministers agreed to organise meetings for both countries’ private sectors.

Safadi and Tanoh reviewed the latest regional developments, mainly those related to the Palestinian issue and the Syrian crisis, as well as the efforts exerted in the war against terrorism, which they stressed as constituting a common threat that has to be uprooted from the Middle East, and the entire world.

Safadi acquainted the Ivorian minister with His Majesty’s efforts in realising regional peace and stability through reaching a comprehensive solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state solution that guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the pre-1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital.

He also briefed him on the Kingdom’s efforts in ending the Syrian crisis through a political solution that preserves the country’s territorial integrity and receives the approval of Syrians according to the UN Security Council Resolution 2254.

For his part, Tanoh expressed appreciation for Jordan’s support to his country and commended the Kingdom’s role, through participating in the UN peacekeeping forces, in maintaining the stability of Ivory Coast.

He expressed keenness to continue coordinating with the Kingdom on various regional issues, especially that as his country is now a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.

As a Jordanian,I welcome the visit of H.E. the minister of foreign affairs of Cote d'Ivoire to Jordan and I hope that this visit will boost the bilateral ties between the two friendly countries which would reflect positively on various fields that enhance economic,business and tourism opportunities.

THERE ARE TWO MOST IMPORTANT PUBLIC ECONOMIC RELATED POLICIES THAT THE KINGDOM HAS MADE SINCE I HAVE KNOWN JORDAN
NOTABLY THE EXPANSION OF UNIVERSITIES TO INCLUDE PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES AND THE OTHER ONE IS THE WARMING UP RELATIONS WITH AFRICAN COUNTRIES. THESE HAS IMPROVED TRADE AND PUBLIC RELATIONS AND WE OWE THESE OUT OF THE BOX POLICIES TO THOSE WHO PLAYED ANY PART TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. FOR THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT, THANKS TO THE LATE MINISTER OF ADUCATION. FOR THE WARMING UP OF RELATIONS WITH AFRICAN COUNTRY, JORDAN SHOULD BE PROUD OF THEIR FRIENDS OVERSEAS. I STILL HAVE A COPY OF THE LETTER THAT I SENT TO THE LATE NIGERIAN PRESIDENT OVER 20 TEARS AGO TO CONSIDER OPENING EMBASSY IN JORDAN AND THEY HAVE DONE SO WHEN THE TIME CAME. AL HICKMA PHARMAY COMPANY HAD ZERO OPPERATION IN AFRICA BEFORE I WENT TO THEIR OFFICE OVER THIRTY YEARS AGO TO ASK IF I COULD BE THEIR REPRESENTATIVE IN NIGERIA OR AFRICA AND THEY AGREED, GAVE FORMS TO MOPLETE AND FOLLOWED UP BUT I COULD NOT DO IT BECAUSE IT WAS DURING MY UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION IN USA BUT I DID ENCOURAGE THEM TO FIND SOMEONE IN LAGOS AND MOVE IN. THANK GOD THEY DID. LOOK AT THE REVENUE BEING GENERATED TODAY FROM PRIVATE SCHOOLS AND THE TRADE BETWEEN AFRICA AND JORDAN. AS HIS MAJESTY CONTINUES TODAY TO PUSH FOR MORE AND MORE DIVERSITY IN ALL SECTORS, JORDAN AND THE JORDANIANS HAVE EVERY GOOD REASONS FOR OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THEIR FUTURE. ACCORDING TO ONE PHILOSOPHY, THE GREATEST DANGER ON EARTH IS FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN WHICH SHOULD NEVER DISCOURAGE ANY ONE AND/OR POLICY.
