Jordan’s King Abdullah II visits Pakistan today

King Abdullah-II of Jordan is due to arrive in Islamabad on Thursday on a two-day visit to Pakistan on the invitation of President Mamnoon Hussain.

He will be leading a high-level delegation, including senior officials, said a foreign ministry statement.

His Majesty King Abdullah II accompanied by Her Majesty Queen Rania Abdullah on Wednesday visited the United Arab Emirate (UAE).

During his stay in Islamabad, the Jordanian King will hold talks with President Mamnoon and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in which bilateral, regional and international matters of mutual interest will be discussed.

The visit will provide an opportunity to explore ways and means to further strengthen cooperation in diverse areas of mutual interest, particularly expanding bilateral trade and enhancing investment in Pakistan.

Both Pakistan and Jordan enjoy extremely close and brotherly relations and share common perceptions on regional and international issues, and on matters concerning Muslim Ummah.

The visit of the King Abdullah-II is expected to give a new impetus to the existing fraternal bonds between the two brotherly countries.

Meanwhile yesterday, Pakistan denounced the repeated missile attacks on Saudi territory by the Houti militia.

“We are deeply concerned over media reports of a missile attack by Houthi militia towards Khamis Mushait on February 5, 2018. The timely interception by Saudi Air Defence saved the civilian populated city from grave consequences. Such attacks targeting the unarmed civilian population are a violation of international law and condemnable,” said a foreign ministry statement.

These attacks, the statement said: “pose a threat to the security of the Kingdom and the Holy Places. Pakistan reiterates its solidarity with the Government and people of the Saudi Arabia and renews its commitment to support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as to protect its Holy Places.”
