17 September 2019

His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday met Federal President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier at Bellevue Palace, and discussed the strategic Jordanian-German ties and means to enhance cooperation in all areas.

King Abdullah expressed Jordan’s appreciation for the support provided by Germany for several development projects in the Kingdom.

The meeting also covered regional concerns and the need to find political solutions to crises in the region.

The importance of maintaining coordination and consultation between the two countries on various matters of mutual concern was also stressed, with the goal of achieving peace and bolstering security and stability in the region.

His Majesty stressed the need for concerted international efforts in rejection of all unilateral measures that could undermine the two-state solution—the only solution to the conflict, which leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 4 June 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital, living side by side with Israel in peace and security.

For his part, President Steinmeier, stressed the importance of Jordan’s role, under His Majesty’s leadership, in achieving security and stability in the region, highlighting the Kingdom’s humanitarian role in shouldering the burden of hosting refugees.

Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, Adviser to His Majesty for Communication and Coordination Bisher Khasawneh, Jordan’s Ambassador in Berlin Bashir Zoubi, and a number of German officials attended the meeting.
