This joint declaration will help us work together more closely with Jordan to increase its energy security and support the beneficial reforms in the energy sector. It builds on the strong energy co-operation that we are establishing with other partners in the region, including Egypt, Algeria and Morocco," commissioner for external relations and European neighbourhood policy Benita Ferrero-Waldner said.
"With Jordan we will focuson, among other issues, strengthening Jordan's energy policy with a view to a progressive integration of the Jordanian energy market into that of the EU," the commissioner added.
