Egyptian-Jordanian-Iraqi Talks on Developments in Arab World


Egyptian President Abdel Fatah El-Sisi, Jordanian King Abdullah II, and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhemi held a tripartite summit on Tuesday, in the Jordanian capital Amman. They discussed several issues related to the Arab world.

During the meeting, they emphasized the need to strengthen cooperation, and coordination to achieve a comprehensive political settlement to the conflict in Libya.

The leaders reviewed developments in Syria, Yemen, and agreed to intensify coordination to achieve a comprehensive political settlement. This would help to preserve the unity and independence of Arab countries, and end the humanitarian suffering of their peoples.

The Egyptian Presidency said in a statement that they had addressed enhancing cooperation in all fields, especially energy, power linkage, infrastructure, and food.

Libya has been marred in violence since the toppling and killing of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The conflict now pits the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), against the Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, for control of the country.
