Jordan’s deputy prime minister and foreign minister, Ayman Al Safadi, begins a two-day working visit to Cyprus on Thursday.

During the visit, he will have a tete-a-tete meeting with Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides which will be followed by extended consultations with the participation of delegations of the two ministries.

At the end of the consultations, the two ministers will make statements to the media before Kasoulides will host a dinner in honour of his Jordanian counterpart.

The two ministers are expected to focus on bilateral and trilateral cooperation in a wide range of areas, including dealing with natural disasters, climate change and defence.

They will also discuss aspects of the Middle East peace process, the situation in Ukraine in light of the ongoing Russian invasion, EU-Jordan relations, as well as other current regional and international issues of common interest.

During his visit, Al Safadi, will be received by President Nicos Anastasiades and House president Annita Demetriou, the press release said.
