Jordan’s Ambassador to Cyprus Mohamed El-Fayez affirmed on Tuesday his country’s support for a resolution of the Cyprus Problem on the basis of relevant UN resolutions.
In a meeting held in Nicosia with House Speaker Adamos Adamou, El-Fayez condemned the partitionist positions expressed by the north in view of the informal Cyprus conference aiming for the resumption of Cyprus reunification talks, a House of Representatives press release said.
El-Fayez "reaffirmed Jordan’s principled position as regards the Cyprus Problem, underlining that a solution should be based on relevant UN resolutions,” the press release added.
The ambassador also expressed his thanks for Cyprus’ support at the EU level, mainly relating with dealing with the huge number of refugees hosted in Jordan’s territory. On his part, Adamou referred to the serious problem the Republic of Cyprus is faced with as the EU member state with the greatest number of asylum seekers in relation to its population.
The two men also referred to the fact that in recent years, ties between the two countries have grown stronger in all areas including at the parliamentary level with the House Speaker conveying his willingness to further enhance inter-parliamentary relations at both the bilateral and trilateral level in the context of a cooperation mechanism between Cyprus, Greece and Jordan.
Recent developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East were also discussed, with both Adamou and El-Fayez stressing the importance of further promoting and broadening the trilateral cooperation of Cyprus and Greece with countries in the region, including Jordan, in a broader framework of regional cooperation always on the basis on common principles and with a view to achieving conditions of peace, stability and prosperity in the region, the press release states.
They also exchanged views on the pandemic’s course in both countries and its impact.
