During talks with visiting Egyptian Interim President Adli Mansour, the king said Jordan supports the choice of the Egyptians and their efforts to enhance unity in the country which enable it to restore its role in the region.
Considering the ties with Egypt as solid and distinguished, the king said the two countries are keen to boost cooperation in different fields.
