Jordanian King Abdullah II held talks with Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Masimov on Monday, stressing his willingness to bolster bilateral ties in different fields, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

In their discussions, Abdullah II underlined his desire to strengthen ties with Kazakhstan in the fields of economy, energy, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, tourism and construction.

For his part, Masimov said his country is interested in cementing its ties with Jordan.

He also held talks with his Jordanian counterpart Samir Rifai, who said that a Jordanian trade mission will be dispatched to Kazakhstan soon.

According to Rifai, a commercial center will be opened in Astana, Kazakhstan's capital, this month to help boost the Arab kingdom's export to Kazakhstan.

According to Rifai, trade volume between the two countries stood at 10 million U.S. dollars in 2009.

He noted that there are no joint investments between the two countries, a matter that necessitates intensifying cooperation in this regard.
