Jordanian King Abdullah II and visiting Iraqi President Jalal Talabani on Saturday vowed to enhance ties between the two neighbors, the official Petra news agency reported.
During their meeting, the two leaders said that ties between the two countries are going forward in the right direction, pledging to surmount all hindrances that may negatively affect these relations, the report said.
"We, in Jordan, will not allow anyone from any party to oppress the Iraqi people and leadership," the king said, adding that Jordan is standing with Iraq to fight terrorism and those who support it.
"We all must band together to fight terrorism which is targeting the brethren Iraq and its political process," he added, adding the kingdom will return its ambassador to Iraq as soon as possible.
For his part, Talabani confirmed that Iraq's new government seeks to develop bilateral ties, saying that his visit to Jordan is to strengthen such relations, particularly in economic, political and social fields.
The two leaders also stressed the importance of enhancing work of the Jordanian-Iraqi Joint Committee to discuss trade and economic cooperation and an active role of Jordan in Iraq's reconstruction.
Earlier in the day, Iraqi Ambassador to Jordan Ata Abdul Wahab resumed his duty after being recalled back on March 22.
