Egypts Sisi heads to Amman for trilateral summit with Jordan, Iraq

 Egypt s President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is heading on Tuesday to Amman, Jordan s capital and largest city, to attend a trilateral summit held for the third time with Iraq, the presidency said in a statement.

 
The summit comes "within the framework of the path of trilateral cooperation mechanism between the three countries," presidential spokesman Bassam Radi said in a Facebook post.
 
The summit will cover economic, trade and investment cooperation, as well as regional developments, a statement by the Royal Hashemite Court read last week.
 
It will be attended by Jordan’s King Abdullah II and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi.
 
The first trilateral summit was held in Cairo in March 2019, with the second summit held in New York in September of the same year.
 
The past summits saw an exchange of views between leaders from the three countries on crucial regional issues and common security challenges, as well as means to restore stability in the region.
