King Abdullah II bin Al Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan delivered a speech before the 32nd Regular Session of the Arab League Council at summit level, hosted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Jeddah, in which he said that the mechanism of joint Arab action needs constant development. He also said that the role played by the Arab League is essential to maximising cooperation, especially at economy level, among Arab countries, which helps counter the challenges posed by international crises.
The Jordanian King mentioned the tripartite cooperation mechanism, among Jordan, Egypt and Iraq, and the complementary industrial partnership for sustainable economic development, in addition to the ongoing cooperation projects with the brotherly Gulf countries as examples of what could be achieved on a larger scale due to such cooperation.
He welcomed Syria’s return to the Arab League, saying that it is an important step that will hopefully contribute to the efforts to end the crisis. He also stressed the importance of bolstering the political track that was launched at the Amman Meeting and built on the Jordanian initiative, as well as the efforts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries, to end the Syrian crisis and address its humanitarian, security, and political implications, so that the refugees can return to their homeland.
King Abdullah stressed that Iraq’s stability is important to the region’s stability, and the importance of supporting the steps taken by the Iraqi government to restore Iraq’s role and position within the Arab region, while bolstering its stability, prosperity, and sovereignty.
