Jordan and Egypt to Send Delegates to Manama Conference

Cairo, MINA – The governments of Egypt and Jordan said they would send officials from their finance ministry to take part in the United States economic initiative conference in Manama, Bahrain this week.

Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez said in Cairo on Sunday, June 26, the delegation would be led by a Deputy Minister of Finance, Nahar Net reported.

Meanwhile, Jordanian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Sufyan Al-Qudah confirmed to reporters that his country would send a secretary general at Ministry of Finance without names.

However, Qudah insisted that there are no economic proposals that can replace political solution that ended the occupation of Palestinian territory by Israel.

The White House said on June 12 that Egypt, Morocco, and Jordan had agreed to attend the economic workshop.

Jordan and Egypt are two Arab countries that have signed a peace agreement with Israel.

Meanwhile, Morocco has yet to confirm its presence in Manama on June 25-26. (T/Sj/P2)
