Najjar stressed the importance of building on the cultural relationship between the two countries, which have many things in common.

She said that Jordan is a country open to all cultures, and advocates for love, peace, and dialogue.

The minister noted that Jordan welcomes refugees from neighboring countries, shares its resources with them, and guarantees their rights to education, health, culture, and a decent life, just as it does for its citizens.

Jordan, Najjar added, welcomes cooperation with other countries to exchange knowledge and expertise. She said that ministry is ready to draw up cooperation programs with Belgium to benefit the cultural exchange of the two countries.

For his part, ambassador Bulk noted that the Royal Film Commission and the Ministry of Culture signed an agreement in July with the Flanders Department of Culture, Youth, and Media, adding that his country is ready to build on this agreement to include more cultural sectors as well as training.
