His Majesty King Abdullah will next week pay a working visit to the Albanian capital of Tirana to participate in an international meeting as part of the “Aqaba Meetings” to follow up on the international efforts in the war on terror, according to a Royal Court statement.

The meeting, which will be held for the first time outside Jordan, will discuss security challenges in the Western Balkans, involving security and political officials from several countries, as well as officials from the Balkans, international partners and the EU.

His Majesty and Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama will also attend part of a conference on combating extremism organised by the Albanian and Dutch governments, in the presence of the heads of governments of Kosovo, Macedonia and Bulgaria as well as 200 political, security, religious and academic leaders.


The “Aqaba Meetings”, launched by His Majesty King Abdullah in 2015, aim at enhancing security and military coordination and cooperation and exchanging experiences and intelligence between regional and international partners to combat terrorism within a holistic approach.

HRH Prince Feisal was sworn in as Regent during the King’s absence.
