President of India’s Message on the Eve of Independence Day of Jordan

The President of India, Pranab Mukherjee has extended his greetings and felicitations to the King and people of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on the eve of their Independence Day (May 25, 2016).

In a message to His Majesty King Abdullah II, the King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the President has said, “I have immense pleasure in extending warm greetings and felicitations to you and to the friendly people of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on the occasion of your Independence Day.

India and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan enjoy excellent bilateral relations. Last year, we celebrated the 65th Anniversary of our diplomatic relations. I warmly recall my first State Visit to Jordan in October, 2015. We had very constructive and forward looking discussions. I understand that decisions taken during this visit are now being implemented in various sectors to further enhance and enrich our bilateral cooperation. Jordan’s profile in our food security is growing – with additional supplies of phosphate minerals, including from the joint venture plant jointly inaugurated with Your Majesty during my recent visit to Amman.

I am confident that given the complementarities in our mutual interests, the bilateral relationship between India and Jordan will be further intensified in the years to come.

I take this opportunity to extend my best wishes for Your Majesty’s well being and good health, as well as for the continued progress and prosperity of the friendly people of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan”.
