AMMAN — Saudi Arabia on Tuesday praised the efforts of the Public Security Department (PSD) and all its personnel for their cooperation with the Saudi border authorities in foiling most smuggling attempts into the Gulf country.

During a meeting with PSD Director Gen. Tawfiq Tawalbeh, Saudi Ambassador to Jordan Sami Bin Abdullah Al Saleh discussed ways of boosting bilateral security cooperation.

Tawalbeh said Jordanian-Saudi cooperation in protecting their shared border, fighting drug trafficking and exchanging information has made it harder for dealers to smuggle narcotics across the border.
