Interior Minister, Salama Hammad, discussed with Egyptian Ambassador to Jordan Sharif Kamel, on Thursday means of enhancing bilateral cooperation between the two countries, especially in the security and police fields, and mechanisms of rectifying Egyptian labor in the Kingdom.

During the meeting, Hammad said the “distinguished, historic” relations between the two countries have always had a privacy in their strategic dimensions.

Hammad also stressed the need to rectify the conditions of the Egyptian labor through obtaining work permits to earn “a sound legal status” to stay in the Kingdom.

On furthering ties, he highlighted the importance of exchanging security expertise, and training programs that would increase the level of cooperation and coordination to combat crime and achieve security.

The region’s circumstances call for solidarity and continued coordination and consultation to preserve the regional stability and avoid further challenges and difficulties that may arise in the absence of pan-Arab cooperation, Hammad pointed out.

For his part, the Egyptian envoy said the embassy is working to inform and direct Egyptians working in the Kingdom to rectify their status in accordance with the laws and regulations in force.

Today’s meeting, he noted, comes to strengthen bilateral relations in various fields and to maintain contact to serve the common interests of the two peoples.

At the end of the talks, Hammad affirmed the ministry’s readiness to overcome any obstacles facing Egyptians in rectifying their conditions.
