Amman, 27 August 2012
His Majesty King Abdullah on Monday met with His Majesty King Hamad Bin Issa Al Khalifa of Bahrain and discussed bilateral relations and the latest developments in Syria.
The two leaders highlighted the “deep ties” between their countries and agreed on enhancing them to serve the best interests of Jordan and Bahrain.
They also expressed concern over the situation in Syria, as the fighting rages on with no political solution available so far to end the crisis and maintain Syria’s unity and sovereignty.
During the meeting, King Abdullah outlined Jordan’s relief efforts to support Syrian refugees, stressing that the Kingdom will continue to provide needed assistance despite its limited resources.
King Hamad is on a two-day official visit to Jordan.
