Jordanian and Kazakh officials will hold talks on mechanisms to put into effect agreements signed in the fields of economy, agriculture and consultations, the state- run Petra news agency reported on Saturday.

The two countries will look into means to foster relations in different fields during a visit by Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Masimov to the Arab kingdom that will start on Monday.

Masimov, who will chair a high-ranking delegation, will hold talks with Jordan's Prime Minister Samir Rifai and key Jordanian officials.

In November 2009, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev visited the Arab kingdom, and held talks with King Abdullah II on means to foster relations and developments in the Middle East.

Abdullah II visited Kazakhstan in 2007, during which the two countries signed several agreements including one to boost economic and commercial relations and another on cooperation in the transport sector.

Agreements to enhance cooperation in the education and tourism sectors were also sealed, including one in the sector of air transport under which Royal Jordanian and Air Astana are adopted as the official carriers between the two countries.
