Fayyad, Jordan’s Prime Minister Sign Trade Agreements
RAMALLAH, October 4, 2012 (WAFA) – Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and Jordan’s Prime Minister Fayez Tarawneh signed Thursday a number of vital trade agreements.
Fayyad said during a press conference following a meeting with Tarawneh at his Ramallah office that the trade agreements, most importantly the free trade agreement between the two countries, will help build strong relationships and benefit both the Palestinian and Jordanian people.
Tarawneh pointed out that the free trade agreement will commit both sides to improve the level of trade between Palestine and Jordan.
He also condemned Israeli measures in occupied East Jerusalem, particularly at al-Aqsa Mosque in the Old City, which he said violate international law and the Geneva Conventions.
Tarawneh had earlier met with President Mahmoud Abbas and discussed the latest political developments in the region.
His visit was to attend the meetings of the Joint Jordanian-Palestinian Higher Committee.
