Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held talks with Jordan’s King Abdullah II at Al Husseiniya Palace in Amman, during which the Jordanian King stressed the pivotal role of Saudi Arabia, led by King Salman bin Abdulaziz, in supporting the region’s causes.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman stressed the Kingdom’s keenness to consolidate brotherly relations with Jordan, pointing out that the goal is to push for a new phase of cooperation for the benefit of Jordan and Saudi Arabia, and that there are great opportunities that will benefit both countries.

King Abdullah also bestowed upon the Saudi Crown Prince the Order of al-Hussein bin Ali, which is the highest order of Jordan, embodying the close ties between the two countries.

During the visit, the two leaders will discuss a number of regional and international issues and the strengthening of relations in various fields.

The Crown Prince arrived in Jordan earlier on Tuesday and was welcomed at the airport by King Abdullah. Royal Jordanian Air force fighter jets accompanied the Crown Prince's aircraft upon entering Jordan’s airspace.

The Crown Prince had earlier left Egypt, where he met with President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and discussed a host of regional issues including Iran, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine.

Prince Mohammed is scheduled to visit Turkey next as the last leg of his tour.
