A recent agreement with the US will contribute to his country’s economic reform program, Jordan’s foreign minister said.
According to Jordan’s official news agency Petra, which quoted Ayman al-Safadi, the fourth US-Jordan Memorandum of Understanding on Strategic Partnership (MoU) signed Friday in Washington “will contribute to supporting the economic reform program.”
The remarks made by al-Safadi came during a meeting with US National Security Council Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa Brett McGurk.
According to a statement from the Jordanian Foreign Ministry, the officials “discussed bolstering the US-Jordan strategic partnership, and efforts to confront regional challenges to enhance security and stability in the region.”
In a statement, the countries said, “The United States supports providing $1.45 billion per year in U.S. bilateral foreign assistance to Jordan beginning in Fiscal Year 2023 and ending in Fiscal Year 2029.”
