Bahrain, Jordan review ways to strengthen parliamentary cooperation

January 11, 2022

Manama, Jan. 10 (BNA): Speaker Fawzia bint Abdullah Zainal has emphasised the depth of the strong and distinguished historical relations between Bahrain and Jordan that have contributed to achieving advanced levels of integrated coordination in all political, security, development and parliamentary fields.

During talks with Speaker of Jordan's House of Representatives Abdulkarim Al Daghmi, Zainal commended the consolidation of the relations of the two brotherly countries based on the keenness of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein.

The talks covered developing parliamentary relations and joint work mechanisms, activating agreements and memoranda of understanding, and exchanging views on regional and international issues and topics of shared interest.

The two Speakers stressed that parliamentary cooperation has become more important to face common challenges, saying there is greater need for wider coordination of visions and positions, convergence of views, and holding more meetings through visits and all available means of communication.

Al Daghmi stressed the depth of the relations between Bahrain and Jordan and expressed pride in the coordination of visions on various regional and international issues.

He emphasised Jordan's firm position in supporting the security and stability of Bahrain, and the decisions it takes to protect its national unity and sovereignty.

He also praised the solidarity of Bahrain's leadership, government and people with Jordan and support for the measures it takes to protect its achievements from any attempt to undermine them.
