The ambassador to Amman stressed the need for exchange of parliamentary delegations between Iran and Jordan to help pave the way for expansion of bilateral cooperation.

Mojtaba Ferdosipour made the remarks in a meeting with Mustafa Yaghi, chairman of the legal committee of Jordan’s House of Representatives and head of the Jordan-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group, in Amman on Wednesday.

Pointing to the important role played by the two countries’ people, who are represented by their parliaments, in regional developments, the ambassador said expansion of parliamentary relations will help prepare the ground for increasing bilateral ties between Iran and Amman in various fields.

The Jordanian lawmaker, for his part, called for enhanced relations between the two countries in all areas to help improve regional security in the face of an upsurge in extremism and violence, saying, “Jordan’s king, government and parliament are resolved to strengthen relations with Iran as we consider Iran an important country in the region.”
