Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs Ayman Safadi affirmed, on Tuesday, the depth of friendship between Jordan and Romania, and the common interest in deepening bilateral cooperation within the framework of the European Union, stressing at the same time Romania’s commitment to supplying wheat to Jordan, as it is the largest supplier of wheat to Jordan.

He added during a joint press conference with his Romanian counterpart Bogdan Aurescu in Bucharest that the meeting was an opportunity to deepen cooperation and develop the relationship, as the number of scholarships offered by Romania to Jordanian students in the field of medicine will be raised from 10 to 26.

“We agreed to hold the next round of political consultations as soon as possible, which provides a mechanism to discuss cooperation on a periodic basis that identifies broader opportunities, and we agreed to hold meetings for consular departments to facilitate the granting of visas to Romania to facilitate the work of the commercial sector between the two countries,” according to Safadi.

Safadi stressed Jordan’s position on the Palestinian issue and affirmation of the two-state solution in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions.

Safadi said that Jordan praises Romania’s support for efforts to achieve a just and comprehensive peace based on the two-state solution.

During the official visit, Safadi will hold bilateral talks with senior Romanian officials, where he will discuss ways to deepen cooperation between the two friendly countries that share a strong historical relationship, and within the framework of the partnership with the European Union.

The visit comes as an affirmation of the common interest in expanding the horizons of bilateral cooperation, especially in the political, economic, tourism, educational, energy and security fields.

Diplomatic relations between Jordan and Romania date back to 1965, and in 1974 a diplomatic mission at the level of an “embassy” was opened in each of the two countries’ capitals, and a resident ambassador was appointed in each of them, and the honorary consulate of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was reopened in the city of “Braشوفov” in Romania.

Safadi and Orescu, who met last year in Amman, affirmed the strength of the bilateral relationship between Jordan and Romania, which has been based on a solid foundation of trust and friendship for more than 56 years.

The talks reflected bilateral relations in cooperation in important areas such as agriculture, including food security and energy, as well as information technology.
