The Iraqi government announced Friday (May 18th) that it signed a bilateral cooperation agreement with Jordan relating to energy, economy and counter-terrorism.
Ali al-Dabbagh, spokesperson for the Iraqi government, told Al-Shorfa the agreement was reached in a meeting between Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and an official Jordanian delegation visiting Baghdad.
The delegation is headed by Abdullah Warikat, special envoy for Jordan's King Abdullah II, and the country's chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, Gen. Meshal Mohammed al-Zaben.
Al-Dabbagh said the meeting led to an agreement on counterterrorism efforts, especially along the borders, and establishing a long-term energy and economic partnership.
Iraqi and Jordanian committees will supervise the implementation of the agreement, and Iraqi officials expressed their willingness to increase the level of co-operation with Jordan, al-Dabbagh said.
