ALGIERS— Algeria and Jordan signed five agreements on Sunday in a ceremony co-chaired by Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune and visiting King Abdullah II of Jordan in the capital Algiers.


The agreements included a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on bilateral political consultations, an agreement on the mutual visa exemption for holders of diplomatic passports and a MoU between the two countries’ diplomatic institutes.


The two countries also agreed to establish a joint cooperation program between the Algerian and Jordanian official news agencies, and mutually recognize the eligibility certificates granted for seafarers and maritime training programs.


Earlier in the day, Algerian and Jordanian ministers held talks and discussed ways to promote bilateral ties in various domains, including trade exchange.


Algiers and Amman have shown their desire to promote bilateral relations. Jordan is Algeria’s sixth largest trading partner in the Arab region, with an overall trade exchange of 219.24 million U.S. dollars in 2021, the APS news agency reported.
