This came during the association's meeting Sunday with Aranzazu Banon Davalos, the Spanish ambassador to the Kingdom, where they discussed ways to deepen Jordanian-Spanish relations, according to Jordan News Agency, Petra.

Hina underlined the importance of the Hashemite custodianship of holy sites in Jerusalem, stating that His Majesty King Abdullah has recently restored the momentum of the Palestinian cause at international and regional forums.

He said Jordan lives in the heart of an inflamed region and focuses its efforts on addressing multiple challenges, calling on Spain to help Jordan reduce unemployment, which has reached a high rate among young people due to the pandemic.

For her part, the Spanish ambassador said that her country and Jordan share many views, especially on the Palestinian issue, stressing the need to find a just and comprehensive solution for the people of the region to enjoy peace and stability.

Davalos added that Jordan can be a distinguished tourist destination in the region because it has attractive tourist sites, such as the ancient city of Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea, among others.

Davalos also spoke of a 50 million euro grant dedicated to fighting COVID-19 in the Kingdom.
