Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi arrived in Amman on Thursday to hold talks with his Jordanian counterpart King Abdullah II on means to foster bilateral relations between the two countries.

El- Sisi's visit is considered to be his first to Amman as head of state.

Both presidents are scheduled to address the latest regional developments as well as issues of mutual concern.

Egyptian Ambassador to Jordan Khaled Tharwat said the visit aims to boost coordination between both countries to face possible regional threats.

"What affects the Egyptian national security affects the Jordanian one and vice versa," he said in a statement carried by Egyptian state news agency MENA.

The leaders are also expected to discuss the latest developments in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
