The envoy made this announcement during a ceremony at the German embassy in Amman, on Monday, celebrating German Unity Day.

Kampmann said that his country, which is the second biggest development and humanitarian donor to the Kingdom, established diplomatic relations with Jordan in 1953.

He praised the close and trustful collaboration with Jordan in addressing multilateral and regional challenges, including the Middle East peace process, the Syrian refugee crisis, and the impact of climate change on Jordan’s scarce water resources, as well as the repercussions of the Russian-Ukrainian war.

Reflecting on the strength and vibrancy of the German-Jordanian relations and the joint commitment to rules-based order, the ambassador expressed hope that relations between the two countries will continue to grow “at this moment of epochal transformation”.

He also noted that the Russian war on Ukraine “has shown how fragile peace between nations continues to be”, adding that “now, 32 years after the German reunification, we find ourselves at another historical turning point.”
