Thanks to the high level of friendly and fraternal relations between the Heads of State President Ilham Aliyev and King Abdullah II, relationship between our countries have become strategic and stepped into qualitatively new stage.

Azerbaijan and Jordan support each other on vitally important issues related to sovereignty, security and development. In recent years, political and strategic trust is deepening and the nations back each other on international and regional issues. The deliberate and balanced policy pursued by the Heads of State enabled the countries to take a special place in the system of global and regional security. These factors continue to play an exceptional role in Azerbaijan-Jordan cooperation.
