Interior Minister Mazen Al-Faraya discussed, during his meeting at the ministry building today, Sunday, the Japanese ambassador to Amman, Shimazaki Kaoru, ways to develop and consolidate bilateral cooperation between the two friendly countries, especially in the security and economic fields.
Al-Faraya affirmed that the Jordanian-Japanese relations are constantly witnessing an increasing development commensurate with the volume of cooperation and coordination existing between the two countries in issues of common interest.
The Minister of Interior indicated the need to benefit from the security expertise between the two countries in the field of combating terrorism, which often stems from difficult economic conditions, lack of job opportunities and economic marginalization, especially in light of regional and international circumstances and changes, to achieve peace and stability in the countries of the region and the world.
The minister praised the Japanese support for Jordan in implementing its reform programs and development projects that Jordan has embarked on to achieve reform that enables us to overcome the economic and development challenges we are facing, some of which are caused by the changes and events experienced by the countries of the region.
During the meeting, Al-Faraya called for the need to work on increasing Japanese investments in the Kingdom, especially in light of the government's measures,
policies and decisions that are constantly being taken to provide a stimulating and attractive investment environment.
In turn, the Japanese ambassador praised the awareness, motivational and organizational measures taken by the Jordanian government to increase the demand for receiving the Corona virus vaccine, which included citizens, refugees and everyone who resides on the territory of the Kingdom without discrimination.
