President Petr Pavel will be travelling to Jordan next week for an official visit to meet with the head of state King Abdullah II, with whom he plans to discuss the current situation in the Middle East as well as cooperation in the areas of healthcare, defence, energy and science. Also on the agenda are meetings with Prime Minister Bisher Khasawneh, President of the Senate Faisal Al-Fayez, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ahmed Safadi.

The president will be accompanied on his trip by a Czech academic and business delegation focussed on the healthcare and defence industries. He plans to bring baby milk powder with him to be distributed as humanitarian aid to civilians in Gaza by the Jordanian Air Force and to visit two hospitals in Jordan where Czechs have either volunteered as doctors or donated equipment.
