Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, on Monday, and exchanged views on the situation in Syria and Afghanistan.
Putin said they hope for an exchange of views on the situation in Syria and the current escalation in Afghanistan.
Moreover, Putin affirmed that these topics have been on the agenda of the Russian-Jordanian relations for years.
On the same page, he stressed that despite the coronavirus pandemic, relations between Russia and Jordan are developing in all areas, including trade and economic ties and political dialogue.
“We are also working jointly to combat the pandemic and overcome its impacts,” he said.
The two leaders walked around the Patriot Park outside Moscow exhibiting pieces of military hardware.
The Russian president explained that these weapons are both supplied to the Russian army and exported.
Direct contacts with colleagues from the armed forces of foreign countries help build up trust, according to him.
“Maybe, it is even more important that exhibiting weapons, though it is also important in terms of strengthening stability,” he asserted.
The meeting included Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev, and presidential aide Yuri Ushakov.
