Shamali issued a statement commending the continuous support the US offers Jordan, which helps it prop up its economy and face many challenges, and called on the US to renew the wheat grant agreement this year.

The minister said the US is a key trade partner to Jordan, a partnership that got a boost when Jordan and the US signed the free trade agreement.

Chesnoiu reiterated his country’s interest in expanding economic cooperation with Jordan, especially in food security, trade, investment, exchange of expertise, etc.
