In an interview with the Jordan News Agency, Petra, on Tuesday on the occasion of Kuwait National Day, he added that these relations have “a long history of understanding, consultation and coordination,” and consequently the Joint Higher Committee held four meetings, while the two countries held technical sessions to achieve integration and follow-up on various cooperation aspects.

In addition, the diplomat stressed that Jordan and Kuwait share “identical” positions, thanks to the two countries’ leaders’ directives, which are based on firm principles towards all regional and international issues that put the Palestinian issue as a priority and a focus of attention to support Palestinian rights and their struggle, which seek to achieve pan-Arab solidarity and unity.

In regard to Kuwait’s investments in Jordan, he said their volume reached $18 billion to cover various energy, real estate projects and infrastructure sectors, pointing out that there is a “clear” activity of Jordan Investment Commission, due to the Kingdom’s attractive investment climate, in addition to the Kuwaiti private sector’s role.

Jordan and Kuwait have signed 73 economic agreements, the ambassador said.

Some 62,000 Jordanians work in Kuwait, who offer their expertise in all fields, he said, adding that Jordanian expats in Kuwait formed a volunteer team during the COVID-19 pandemic to help Kuwaiti people in humanitarian work.

The Palestinian cause was and still is Kuwait’s first issue, he noted, adding that Kuwait’s stances are “firm and supportive” of the just Palestinian cause, which is considered to have a central place in the Arab and Islamic world.

This situation calls on Arab countries to support Palestinian issue in regional and international forums to emphasize the need to stand by the brotherly Palestinian people, in an effort to achieve their aspirations to establish an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative, according to the envoy.
