Separately, Safadi also met with his Romanian counterpart, Bogdan Aurescu, and several other Romanian officials. Discussions focused on ways to deepen cooperation between the two countries, which share a strong historical relationship, within the EU partnership framework.

Safadi’s visit is part of Jordan’s efforts to expand bilateral cooperation, primarily in the political, economic, tourism, educational, energy, and security fields.

Ahead of the meeting, Aurescu tweeted: “I look forward to receiving my friend and colleague, Minister Ayman Safadi, in Bucharest on Tuesday, to follow up on our dialogue after my visit to Amman last year.”

Following his talks in Bucharest, Safadi said there was an opportunity to deepen cooperation and develop the relationship with Romania, where the number of grants to Jordanian students in the field of medicine will be increased from 10 to 26.

Safadi reiterated Romania’s commitment to supply wheat to Jordan, noting that Romania is Jordan’s largest wheat supplier.

“We have agreed on an additional round of political discussions as soon as possible, which would provide a mechanism for periodic examination of cooperation that identifies broader opportunities,” Safadi said in a statement.

He said it was also agreed to “hold meetings of consular services to facilitate the granting of visas to Romania to assist the business sectors in both countries.”
