The MoU confirms the strategic partnership between the two countries' governments, framing the support provided to the Kingdom.

Before the signing ceremony, bilateral talks will take place between Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ayman Safadi and his US counterpart Antony John Blinken at 6 pm Amman time, followed by a joint press conference. 

A joint statement was issued after The King met Biden on July 16, on the sidelines of the Jeddah summit, during which Biden confirmed the US intention to sign a new memorandum of understanding with Jordan, which includes granting Jordan an annual aid of no less than $1.45 billion in the period 2023–2029.

 

The new memorandum is the largest in terms of the amount of aid provided to Jordan, and the longest in terms of time, and is based on more than 7 decades of strategic partnership between the two countries.

 

The MoU reflects the political commitment of the US to support Jordan, its stability and the strong partnership between the two countries, and aims to meet Jordan's needs and support the economic reform program announced by His Majesty King Abdullah.

 

President Biden reaffirmed the US absolute support for Jordan as a key ally of the United States and a peace force in the region, and for the leadership of King Abdullah.
