Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi arrived at Amman’s Marka military airport on Sunday, where he was greeted by Jordan’s leader King Abdullah II.
According to Egyptian media reports, al-Sisi’s spokesman said bilateral cooperation between the two nations was on the agenda for talks.
The pair were also expected to discuss regional developments.
Sisi’s visit comes shortly after the visit to both Jordan and Egypt of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Pompeo is on a nine-nation tour of the Middle East aimed at reassuring America’s partners that withdrawing troops from Syria does not mean Washington is abandoning the region.
At each of his stops in the Gulf, Pompeo is urging progress on creating the Middle East Strategic Alliance.
The alliance would join Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) militaries with those of Egypt and Jordan to serve as a counter-balance to Iran, which they all accuse of fomenting unrest and rebellion throughout the region.
