STORY: Chief of Royal Court of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Fayez Tarawneh, met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Friday (March 10) to boost bilateral ties.
“PM Modi received H.E. Dr. Fayez Al-Tarawneh, Chief of Royal Court of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan @PMOIndia,” tweeted Gopal Baglay, spokesperson of Indian foreign ministry.
The details of the meeting were not immediately known.
Tarawneh arrived in India on a four-day visit on Tuesday (March 07) to speak on ‘Global War on Terrorism and its Implication on Middle East Region and Beyond’ at the Indian Council of World Affairs in New Delhi.
Justice Tarawneh also held talks with business and industry leaders earlier this week.
Earlier in the day, Tarawneh also met Indian President Pranab Mukherjee in New Delhi.
Mukherjee had visited Jordan last year – the first ever state-visit by an Indian President to Jordan in 65 years.
Former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was the last Indian leader to visit Jordan in 1988.
Jordan’s King Abdullah II ibn Al Hussein and Queen Rania visited India in October 2012.
The bilateral trade between India and Jordan was US $1.35 billion in 2015-16.
