President Salome Sourabichvili met with the President of the Senate of Jordan, Mr. Faisal Akef Al-Fayez, who is paying an official visit to Georgia.
The discussion was focused on the prospects of developing bilateral relations between Georgia and Jordan, especially about reinforcing and enhancing economic, commercial, touristic, cultural, and educational ties.
Special attention was paid on the current situation in the occupied regions of Georgia. The President of Georgia recalled the fact that Mr. Faisal Akef Al-Fayez visited the occupation line in the village of Khurvaleti, which is divided by barbwire fences and other artificial barriers. President Salome Zourabichvili emphasized that the President of the Senate of Jordan personally witnessed that the situation is worsening so close to the capital and just a few kilometers away from the main national highway.

The President reiterated Georgia’s peaceful policy to resolve the existing conflict.
Talks were also held on plans to develop the cultural ties between both countries and the importance to share Jordan’s experience regarding the renovation of rock-hewn towns.

In addition, the sides talked about the prospects to develop religious tourism in Georgia. The President of the Senate of Jordan noted the potential of such a plan after visiting the St. Nino Monastery of Bodbe the day before.
