According to the Jordan News Agency, Petra, the letter underscored Jordan's commitment to exchanging expertise with member states, saying that is a "clear indication of the maturity of its technical expertise". The letter added that this qualified Jordan to become a distinguished regional hub for training and qualification in nuclear science and technology.

The training and qualification opportunities offered by Jordan to Arab countries are highly efficient and a major axis that works to strengthen cooperation between Arab countries on peaceful uses of nuclear energy, it added.

The IAEA expressed gratitude for Jordan's support for neighboring countries, including Palestine, Iraq, Yemen, and other member states, in addition to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

Jordan, it noted, has contributed to strengthening the capacities of these countries in the various fields of nuclear science and technology, including the areas of radiation protection, preparedness and response to radiological and nuclear emergencies, radioactive waste management, nuclear medicine, and oncology, food and agriculture, education, and training.

The Kingdom's cooperation was also embodied in the technical cooperation program, which included training courses, workshops, training grants, and scientific visits. About 20 activities took place during a one-week to six months training period, bringing together nearly 236 specialists from member states in Asia, the Pacific, and Arab countries.
