During the meeting, Shboul stressed the "deep-rooted, strategic and fraternal" relations between the two countries.

Shboul, who is also official government spokesperson, said His Majesty King Abdullah’s directives prioritize Jordan's relations with Egypt on various issues and files, and said that the large Egyptian community, which amounts to hundreds of thousands, is appreciated in the Kingdom.

Shboul also hailed the level of joint cooperation and coordination between the two countries' media outlets, which play an important role in strengthening bilateral relations and supporting priority issues.

Jabr stressed the "deep-rooted, strategic" Jordanian-Egyptian relations, adding that Cairo is proud of its "strong" ties with Jordan at all levels, and pointing to the many cultural bonds and great coordination in all fields.

He added that the Egyptian president's directives confirm that Jordan is a priority; they also recommend extending bridges of cooperation with brotherly Arab countries, especially Jordan.

Egypt will take over presidency of the Council of Arab Media Ministers in the coming period, and will work to enhance cooperation between Arab countries, institutions and unions, to reach joint cooperation in media training and joint production, he noted.

Jabr also expressed hope that Arab media discussions will come up with executive and practical recommendations.
