Thai chargé d’affaires hails ties, cooperation with Jordan
The chargé d’affaires in the Embassy of Thailand in Amman, Chawadol Nipathannont, said on Sunday that Jordan is the second largest foreign destination for Thai students.
Speaking to the Jordan News Agency (Petra), Nipathannont said that 600 Thai students are currently in the Kingdom, most of them studying Islamic studies, as Jordan is a moderate Islamic country with a good reputation in the educational sector, adding that a cultural exchange agreement will be signed between the two countries’ ministries of culture to boost cooperation.
“Thailand is a main tourism destination for Jordanians, with about 12 thousand annual tourists, while 5 thousand Thai tourists visit Jordan every year,” he said, noting that the numbers dropped due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The chargé d’affaires underscored the deep-rooted ties between the two countries, supported by the special relation between the two royal families, noting that the diplomatic relations, established in 1966, have witnessed consistent growth in many fields.
