President Mohamed Morsi received an invitation from King Abdullah II of Jordan asserting the depth of the Egyptian-Jordanian ties and the need to coordinate for the sake of the Arab nation, said Presidential Spokesman Yasser Ali.
The message was delivered by the Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh during his meeting with the President.
The meeting took up bilateral ties and problems concerning the delivery of the Egyptian gas to Jordan, Ali said.
The Foreign Ministers of Egypt and Jordan met on Wednesday 25/7/2012 to discuss means by which to transport Egyptian aid to Syrian refugees in Jordan.
Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr stressed the importance of taking urgent steps to alleviate the suffering of Syrians who had to flee the conflict in their country to Jordan.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Amr Roshdi said the foreign minister and his Jordanian counterpart agreed that Amman should inform Cairo of the urgent humanitarian needs to make available for some 80,000 Syrians in Jordan.
Those are only the registered refugees, many others are not in the lists, Roshdi noted.
Egypt's top diplomat praised Jordan's initiative to receive tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, seeing in it a move that reflects Arab solidarity in hard times, Roshdi added.
