Jordan, Turkey sign MoU on police cooperation

AMMAN – Jordan and Turkey on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for stepped-up police cooperation.

"The MoU is part of the cooperation between the Hashemite Kingdom and the Turkish Republic," Jordanian Public Security Director Tawfiq Hamed al-Tawalbeh said in a statement.

The MoU, signed on the sidelines of the Special Operations Forces Conference (SOFEX 2014), aims to promote exchanges of expertise and boost the capabilities of police personnel and anti-crime cooperation, al-Tawalbeh said.

Turkish Public Security Director Mehmet Kiliclar, for his part, said joint training sessions would be held as part of expertise exchanges between the two sides.

Last month, Jordan and Turkey agreed to set up a joint cooperation council tasked with promoting trade between the two countries.
