NATO seeks deeper cooperation with Jordan

BRUSSELS, March 9 (Xinhua) -- NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg underscored the importance of the Alliance's partnership with Jordan in talks with visiting Jordanian King Abdullah II at NATO headquarters on Monday.

Stoltenberg underlined that NATO Allies and Jordan face the same security challenges and threats, including terrorism and extremism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and the consequences of failing states, according to a NATO press release.

He expressed his sympathy to the people of Jordan for the recent killing of a Jordanian pilot by ISIL, and stressed that "the terrible acts conducted by extremists underlined the need for us to work even closer together".

Stoltenberg welcomed Jordan's key role in promoting regional security, calling the country a force for moderation and a special partner for NATO. He said NATO looked forward to even deeper cooperation with Jordan in the future.

Jordan has participated in NATO-led missions in the world and it is the first Mediterranean Dialogue country to join the NATO Response Force. NATO is also working with Jordan to build its defence capacity and support training for other partners in the region, the press release said.
