Sisi to meet Abdullah II, attend third Egypt-Jordan-Iraq summit in Amman



Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Tuesday is set to travel to Jordan’s capital Amman to participate in the third summit between Egypt, Jordan and Iraq.

The spokesperson for the Egyptian Presidency Bassam Rady explained that this move comes under the framework of tripartite cooperation between the three countries, first launched in Cairo on March 2019.

Rady said that the Amman meeting aims to build upon what was previously achieved during the previous summits in Cairo and New York, evaluating and following up on developmental cooperation within economic, commercial and investment fields between Egypt, Jordan and Iraq.

Another goal of the summit is to strengthen political and security consultations on ways to address the unprecedented regional challenges facing the Middle East and the Arab world, he added.

According to Rady, the meeting is also set to witness a meeting between the President Sisi and King of Jordan Abdullah II to discuss strengthening bilateral relations at all levels, and continue intensive talks on issues of common interest.
