Foreign Minister Ayman Al-Safadi met with bin Farhan and the two top diplomats “underlined the deep fraternal ties between the two kingdoms and their leaderships,” a Foreign Ministry statement said.

Safadi “conveyed the greetings of His Majesty King Abdullah to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and his appreciation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s constant support for Jordan,” according to the statement.

The two ministers also stressed that “the security and stability of the two kingdoms are integral and inseparable” as both stand together in the face of challenges.

In response to a question by CNN as to whether Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan had requested the release of former Royal Court chief Basem Awadallah, the Saudi foreign ministry said: “The minister was in Amman to reassure Saudi Arabia’s stance in support of Jordan,” adding that: “The minister did not discuss any other issues or make any requests.”
