World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who is currently on a brief visit to Amman, signed ten bilateral agreements on Sunday with Jordanian counterpart Abdullah Ensour.

The agreements were in the fields of economy and trade, social security, job creation and air transport. 

Davutoglu is also scheduled to meet Jordanian King Abdullah II, with whom he is expected to discuss bilateral relations and regional developments.

He is also slated to address the Turkish-Jordanian business forum and attend the opening ceremony for the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency’s new office in Amman.

Davutoglu’s visit -- his first to Jordan as prime minister -- also saw a cooperation agreement signed between Turkish news provider Anadolu Agency and Jordan’s Petra News Agency. 

The deal was signed by Metin Mutanoglu, Anadolu Agency’s deputy director-general and editor-in-chief, and Petra Director-General Faisal al-Shboul.
