The UAE and Jordan have agreed to increase their joint consultation and coordination and exchange views regarding issues of common interest and adopt a unified Arab stance that places Arab interests at top priority and defend and support them in international parliamentary meetings. A Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, in this respect was signed by Dr. Amal Abdullah Al Qubaisi, Speaker of Federal National Council, FNC, and Atef Tarawneh, Speaker of Jordan's House of Representatives, during talks in Abu Dhabi. The two sides stressed the importance of adopting, spreading and promoting the ''Declaration on Human Fraternity'' signed in Abu Dhabi early this month and which calls on people across the globe to unite to bring about inter-faith harmony and spread a vital message of peace and coexistence. Dr. Al Qubaisi and Tarawneh highlighted positions taken by the UAE and Jordan towards the Arab issues, including their active engagement in Arab and Islamic alliances against terrorism, extremism, violence and non-interference into internal affairs of other states as well as support for peaceful settlements to crises besetting some countries in the region and for respect for good neighbourliness. Tarawneh invited Dr. Al Qubaisi to attend the 29th meetings of the Arab Inter-parliamentary Union, AIPU, which Jordan will host on 3rd and 4th March, 2019.
