The President of Panama, Juan Carlos Varela, said on Tuesday that as part of the efforts to improve bilateral relations, a Panamanian delegation will come to Jordan tasked to establish an embassy in Amman.
Varela’s remarks came during a meeting with King Abdullah in the Husainiyah Palace where they discussed cooperation between the two countries and developments in regional and international affairs.
Panama’s president expressed his satisfaction with the visit and commended the efforts made by King Abdullah II to achieve stability and peace in the region and promote interreligious dialogue in the Middle East and beyond.
“Through his majesty's leadership, we seek to increase the number of visits between the two regions.” Varela said pointing out to his country’s aspiration to improve cooperation with Jordan in the fields of trade and tourism.
On his turn, King Abdullah welcomed the president to Jordan, stressing on the deep relations between both countries. His majesty confirmed the importance of the visit in further strengthening and expanding cooperation and economic exchange.
The president of Panama also took part in the second Laureates and Leaders for Children Summit 2018 in the Dead Sea that was launched on Monday under the patronage of King Abdullah.
Varela expressed his appreciation of Jordan’s commitment to combat child labour as this year’s summit was centered around protecting children on the move, particularly in light of global forced migrations that are only expected to increase.
