Amman keen to curb terrorism with KL


PUTRAJAYA: Jordan is keen to cooperate with Malaysia to check international terrorism and learn from Malaysia's experience in enhancing the image of Islam. 

Both countries shared the view that terrorism could be overcome through the resolution of basic problems in West Asia. 

This was among the results of a meeting between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and King Abdullah of Jordan at the Prime Minister's Office here yesterday. 

Elaborating the results of the meeting to reporters, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said Jordan was also prepared to exchange experience and knowledge with Malaysia on Iraq.

“We have also seen Jordan playing an important role in efforts to bring peace and stability in West Asia.” 

He also said Amman could play a role in bringing peace to Palestine. 

Jordan was also keen to take part in the South-East Asia Centre for Counter-Terrorism set up in Kuala Lumpur, he said. 

Earlier, King Abdullah, who was on a two-day working visit to Malaysia, held a closed-door meeting for about an hour with the Prime Minister. 

King Abdullah left for Pakistan later yesterday.
