Jordan’s foreign minister Ayman Safadi expressed his country’s support on Friday for King Mohammed VI’s call for dialogue with Algeria.
Rabat- The King’s call seeks to end the stalemate between the two countries and revive mutual relations built on solidarity and trust.
Safadi said that dispute settlement is a common Arab interest, helping to strengthen common Arab efforts and remove the challenges facing the Arab nation, according to Jordanian news agency Petra.
The minister also stressed the two countries’ central role in harmonizing Arab positions on issues of common interest, adding that rapprochement would have a positive impact on bilateral relations, as indicated in King Mohammed VI’s royal speech for the 43rd anniversary of the Green March.
Relations between Algeria and Morocco have deteriorated due to differences over Western Sahara, and even more so during the Algerian civil war in the 1990s. The countries’ land border, closed in 1994, is the world’s longest closed land border today.
