Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz arrived in the Jordanian capital of Amman on Monday and is scheduled to hold a summit meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan.
The King was received by the King of Jordan at the Marka Military Airport along with a number of princes and ministers.
The Royal Court’s statement stated earlier that the visit comes from the “fraternal ties between Saudi and Jordan, where they will discuss bilateral relations and ways to strengthen them in all aspects and discuss regional and international issues of common concern.”
During the Saudi King’s visit, 15 agreements and an economic and trade memorandum worth up to 4 billion riyals will be signed. The proposed agreement marks the beginning of a new economic era between the two countries, the Jordan Chamber of Commerce earlier said.
King Salman will also lead the Kingdom’s delegation in the 28th Arab Summit, which is scheduled to be held in Jordan on Wednesday.
The official delegation accompanying the King includes Minister of State and Cabinet's Member Dr. Ibrahim bin Abdulaziz Al-Assaf, Minister of Health Dr. Tawfiq bin Fauzan Al-Rabiah, Minister of State and Cabinet's Member Dr. Essam bin Saad bin Said, Minister of Commerce and Investment Dr. Majed bin Abdullah Al-Qasabi, Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, Minister of Transport Sulaiman bin Abdullah Al-Hamdan, and Chief of General Intelligence Khaled bin Ali Al-Humaidan.
