On May 22, Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr met with Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour in Amman, the capital city of Jordan. The two officials discussed "ways and means of strengthening bilateral relations in all fields."
The Middle East peace process between Israel and Palestine, and the ongoing Syrian crisis were also addressed. Mr Amr said Egypt enjoys "brotherly" relations with Jordan and told Mr Ensour about his country's willingness to deepen the bilateral ties.
On May 21, DiploNews explained how and why Mr Amr clarified Egypt's stance on Syria. As Jordan is increasingly involved in the Syrian crisis by hosting "elements" of the US military on its soil and by welcoming a growing influx of refugees from Syria, Mr Amr's visit was likely to assure Jordan of Egypt's support.
