Senate committee meets French envoy

The Jordanian-French Friendship Committee at the Senate, led by its chairman Senator, Haifa Najjar, on Wednesday met French ambassador to Amman David Bertolotti.

Talks during the meeting touched on bilateral cooperation ties at all levels and the two countries’ unanimous stances, especially their ” rejection” of U.S. president’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Discussions also centered on French-funded educational, economic, and developmental projects across the country, alongside other enterprises eyeing to lure fresh French investors, and on fostering economic partnership.

Najjar lauded relations with Paris as ” longstanding and robust” at the various levels and said Jordan is pressing ahead with its reforms policy, a bid to counter rigorous challenges triggered by the Mideast volatilities.

” The two countries sustain a persistent dialogue on an array of current regional and global issues,” Najjar added.

Jordan, she pointed out, is an oasis of security and stability in a turbulent region and the country has a lucrative investment ambience.

Bertolotti, in turn, spoke of Paris’s recent policies at security-driven, economic, and ecological levels, launched in the wake of president Macron’s election.

The bilateral ties, the envoy added, are ” strong and continuous” and underlined his country’s support to Amman in military, development, and reforms domains.

On expanding cooperation, he expressed hope the two countries open fresh prospects of joint cooperation in the fields of climate change and ecology, and said he works to increase French investments in the Kingdom
