On August 17, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu held bilateral and inter-delegatory meetings with his Jordanian counterpart, Ayman al-Safadi, in Amman.

Ankara is seeking to take its cooperation with Jordan to a deeper and more comprehensive level in line with bilateral ties, as Jordan’s prosperity and serenity are of great importance to Turkey, Çavuşoğlu had announced on Monday, prior to the official visit.

Çavuşoğlu commented on the two countries’ bilateral relations and regional developments along with their future in an op-ed published by Jordan’s local daily newspaper, “Turkey-Jordan Relations at a Historical Turn.”

Çavusoglu further expressed that Jordan has made prodigious advancements in the past century since its independence, with the country’s legacy, critical geographical location, and well-educated and proficient population playing a pivotal role in this sense.

In addition to the two sides’ relations having improved in every field over the course of the century, the foreign minister stated: “We do not see Jordan’s prosperity and well-being any different than that of Turkey.”

Çavuşoğlu underlined that the visit of King Abdullah I of Jordan, the first Arab leader to visit Turkey in 1937, was a milestone, and the Treaty of Friendship signed a decade later was the foundation of Turkish-Jordanian diplomatic relations based on mutual respect and sovereign equality.

The hundreds of thousands of Jordanians visiting Turkey annually are an indicator of the sincere friendship between the people of both countries, and the “strong ties” between Turkey and Jordan help the region be confident in its future, according to the minister.
