During a video conference with Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of China Li Zhanshu, Fayez noted that the 45-year-old friendship between the two nations has continued to flourish on all levels, with China becoming Jordan’s third-largest trading partner.

Fayez praised China’s stand on Arab issues, including its constant assertion that any plan that is not linked to the Middle East peace process will not bring sustainable peace to the region.

“We, in Jordan, appreciate China’s support for the Kingdom in various fields, especially the economic,” Fayez said, adding that the relationship between the two countries is moving at a strong pace toward “broader and broader horizons”, serving the interests of both countries.

Fayez highlighted Jordan’s most pressing economic issues, exacerbated by the regional instability, the Syrian refugee crisis, and the pandemic.

He urged Chinese businessmen to take advantage of the investment potential in Jordan, as well as of the Kingdom’s strategic location, which serves to link Asia, Africa, and Europe, as well as the US, which makes it a hub for regional and global trade and investment.

The Chinese official expressed his appreciation for His Majesty King Abdullah’s unique and powerful role in resolving regional conflicts and crises.

Li also reaffirmed his country’s unwavering support for the Hashemite custodianship of Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, as well as the King’s efforts to revive the peace process.

He said that China opposes any change to the status quo in Jerusalem and is collaborating with Jordan to find a just solution to the refugee crisis, based on international resolutions, while also recognizing Jordan’s significant humanitarian role in hosting and caring for refugees.
