Bassil Talks 'Railways and Electricity' with Jordan King
Caretaker Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil met Tuesday with Jordanian King Abdullah II and handed him a letter from President Michel Aoun.
The letter included an invitation to the Arab socio-economic summit that will be held in Beirut in January.
In a tweet, Bassil described the meeting with the monarch as “effective and productive.”
“It involved an exchange of cordiality, ideas and Levantine visions; common sentiments and interests; good neighborliness; railways, electricity, water, border crossings and agriculture; and a special emphasis on the apple sector,” Bassil said.
The minister had kicked off a tour of several Arab countries on Monday, beginning it with a meeting with Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah who also handed an invitation to the socio-economic summit.
